Statement of Need

Labour migration is a complex issue that affects many different stakeholders, including governments, employers, and migrant workers themselves. Managing labour migration effectively and ethically is critical for protecting the rights of migrant workers, promoting economic growth, and addressing demographic challenges. Labour migration management training can help build the capacity of key stakeholders, enhance understanding of the legal and policy frameworks that underpin labour migration, and promote positive outcomes such as increased productivity and economic growth.

It can also help promote collaboration, trust, and understanding among different stakeholders involved in labour migration management. Overall, labour migration management is important for economic development, protecting the rights of migrant workers, and addressing demographic challenges. By ensuring that labour migration is managed effectively and efficiently, countries can benefit from the many positive impacts of migration while mitigating its negative impacts. This training aims to equip government officials, policymakers, and professionals involved in labour migration management with the necessary knowledge and skills to address the complexities and challenges associated with labour migration. It covers a range of topics related to labour migration, including recruitment, labour market assessments, policy development, and migrant worker protection.
