The growing impact of migration on the world of work is testing current migration management systems. There is an emerging concern for the need to better coordinate migration and labour migration policies with those of employment, education and training. This requires cooperation between national education and labour ministries and with other ministries that have responsibility for migration policy, as well as their counterparts across borders. This online training will build and strengthen the capacities of practitioners and policymakers to design and implement labour migration policies by giving access to tools and instruments for evidence-based policymaking on labour migration, and ensuring policy coherence. The training will offer an innovative e-learning platform for open dialogue between participants from various ministries, representatives of workers' and employers' organizations and other relevant stakeholders, enabling them to build their capacity and skills in promoting policy coherence at national and regional level with regard to labour migration. This specialized course will enable you to join a virtual global network of labour migration practitioners flexibly and without needing to travel.
The course is designed in particular for officials and practitioners from ministries dealing with migration and from ministries of labour, representatives of employers and workers' organizations, staff of RECs and international organizations. Participants should hold positions that involve them in decision-making directly or in an advisory capacity and are interested in applying the ILO guidelines and approach to fair and effective governance of labour migration.
