Abstract

Article deals with, in particular, migration influence on both qualitative and quantitative human capital parameters in a recipient country.

Currently Russian migration policy is under transition - the necessity of taking serious measures is acute, especially taking into account migrants’ human capital parameters such as education. Tajikistan, Kirgizia, Armenia are main countries of migrants’ origins in Russia. Migrants from these countries are mainly unskilled, poorly educated, low wage labor.

Migration policy in Finland is considered to be highly adaptive and balanced. Reasons for Finland’s success are the best European projection system of labour market parameters; VET and higher education development; skills anticipation; information dissemination in society; lifelong learning implementation.

There is a variety of methods widely applied in the article – qualitative evaluation of labour market parameters, desk studies, documents analysis, and comparative research.

Author concludes that Russian migration policy shall implement Finnish approach since only full and up-to-date data will contribute to the result-oriented decision-making process.
