Globally, an estimated 103 million people are forcibly displaced by conflict, violence and human rights violations, overwhelmingly in emerging economies. To mitigate the adverse effects of large-scale displacement, it is important to assist both the displaced populations and the host communities by building their resilience, particularly by introducing measures to promote decent jobs, social protection and skills development opportunities. A decent work approach can also ease social tensions between host and displaced populations; social cohesion should be a key objective of such programmes, built into them from their inception. This online course is based on the ILO's 2016 Guiding Principles on the access of refugees and other forcibly displaced persons to the labour market and ILO's extensive experience working at the nexus between humanitarian intervention, development cooperation, and peacebuilding. The course will introduce participants to the concepts of conflict sensitivity, social cohesion, peace responsiveness and offer concrete strategies for designing and implementing conflict-sensitive and peace-responsive initiatives aimed at building, maintaining and strengthening social cohesion between and within refugees and host communities.
The course is designed for: - Experts/practitioners in the field of integration in the labour market of refugees and other forcibly displaced persons - Policy makers and technical advisors involved in the promotion of social cohesion in refugee contexts - Representatives of workers' and employers' organizations - Representatives of local authorities and other state actors - Experts and technical staff from NGOs and other civil society organisations working with refugees and host communities to promote social cohesion.

Participants practice promoting short- and long-term strategies and programmes for inclusive and peace-responsive job creation to strengthen social cohesion and peaceful coexistence between refugees and other forcibly displaced persons and host communities.
Course learning materials and tuition will be offered online in English.
