The LMA aims at providing advanced knowledge and enhancing the capacity of key migration actors to better understand labour migration challenges and opportunities in a changing political, economic and social context.
It covers a wide range of labour migration cross-cutting themes, such as the protection of men and women migrant workers, fair and effective labour migration governance, and linkages between migration and sustainable development. At the end of the LMA, participants will be able to:
- Understand and address key issues and policies regarding labour migration at the global and regional level, and also from a gender perspective;
- Promote migration-development linkages and rights-based approaches to labour migration policies and programmes at national, regional and international levels;
- Recognize the pivotal role of social dialogue and key world-of-work actors (representatives of employers’ and workers’ organizations) in the development of labour migration policy, and in resolving critical issues relating to labour migration;
- Analyze and use International Labour Standards and ILO and United Nations supervisory mechanisms and procedures for protecting migrant workers’ human rights, including labour rights;
- Deepen and master the “Decent Work” approach for migrants and refugees.
