Labour migration affects most countries in the world, and migrant workers contribute greatly to development, both in countries of origin and countries of destination

However, the migration process implies complex challenges in terms of governance, migrant workers' protection, migration and development linkages, and international cooperation. The training activities of the Centre aim to strengthen the capacity of ILO constituents and other key stakeholders to develop and implement policies that minimize the negative individual costs of labour migration and maximize its positive effects for all those involved.
