In 2019, there were 169 million international migrant workers in the world and they constituted 4.9 per cent of the global labour force in the destination countries (ILO, 2021). The majority of people leaving their home countries are migrating for work and almost of half of them are women. The contribution of these migrant workers to the world economy is undeniable, yet many work in some of the worst conditions, with no access to social protection and denied their labour rights. With its mandate on all labour issues, the ILO has built up a wealth of knowledge on migration for employment, in terms of both original research and the rich experience of its Members - governments, employers and trade unions - in dealing with migrant workers. Drawing on these unique resources, this online course offers a comprehensive and accessible overview of international labour standards protecting migrant workers and the ILO's efforts to protect migrant workers through a rights-based approach.
The course is designed for: - officials and practitioners committed to better protect migrants workers, in particular: policy-planners and officials from key ministries responsible for migration; - representatives of the social partners involved in the governance of migration; - practitioners and consultants of UN agencies working in the field of migration, staff of NGO working for the protection of migrants.
This course is divided into three blocks focusing on the following core elements:
l. International labour standards and mechanisms of control
ll. Empowering vulnerable groups to enjoy their labour rights
lll. Access to Justice for migrant workers
