Migration is a complex process that is directly related to and impacted by development policies. Mainstreaming migration positions migrants as rights-bearers and recognizes their freedom of choice to migrate or not to do so. This course explores migration, sectoral policies, and how to ensure coherence between the two through multi-stakeholder mechanisms. In each of the building blocks of this training course, the M&D nexus and the realities it entails are considered at both at the national and local levels, while taking into account international dynamics and actors.
The course is designed for stakeholders involved in the negotiation of bilateral and regional agreements/MoUs and migration issues, in particular officials responsible for migration policy and/or international relations; policy-planners involved in the conclusion of bilateral labour agreements; practitioners from public institutions and ministries dealing with migration policies and/or international relations; representatives of workers' and employers' organizations.
