Helping to create better work
The first (French and Spanish) bilingual course on “International Labour Migration” will take place at the Turin Centre from 10 to 21 October 2011.
In 2010, migrants worldwide were estimated to number 210 million. These migrants, 50% of whom are women, generally migrate with their families and seek jobs. Indicators show that international labour migration is on the increase.
Following a resolution by the International Labour Conference in 2004, the ILO and its constituents are implementing a plan to give migrant workers a fairer deal.
The ILO is promoting a global political agenda to boost labour migration rights. Its Turin Centre is a key player in capacity building and technical assistance projects. This course is designed and run by the Centre and the International Migration Programme of the ILO.
The course will review and analyse the main issues, strategies, policies and tools for good governance of international labour migration. Participants will acquire skills and knowledge with which to identify key strategies for improving the protection of migrants and promoting development.
To encourage the sharing of experience, the two-week workshop, which combines interactive exercises, studies and group work, is open to participants from all over the world.
Officials from agencies and ministries responsible for migration issues, organizations representing workers, employers, migrants or diasporas, NGOs, international development agencies, regional economic communities and research institutes are invited to apply by 2 September.
