Globally, almost 61 million people are forcibly displaced by conflict, violence and human rights violations, overwhelmingly in emerging economies. This is more than at any other time since World War II. As displacement becomes increasingly protracted, cities may offer better economic prospects than camps and rural areas. But access to urban labour markets is usually constrained by the unclear legal status and degree of enjoyment of economic and social rights. Competition in the highly crowded informal economy, where most forcibly displaced people look for work, can also result in unfair competition for unauthorized and unprotected jobs. The wider socio-economic consequences of forced displacement have triggered intense debates globally on how to develop appropriate and sustainable policy responses to these challenges. Based on the ILO guiding principles on the access of refugees and other forcibly displaced persons to the labour market and ILO standards and other human rights instruments and existing good practices, this course aims at strengthen the capacity of relevant policy-makers and practitioners to adopt policy measures on the access of refugees and other forcibly displaced persons to the labour market.
