Globally, more than 70 million people are forcibly displaced by conflict, violence and human rights violations, overwhelmingly in emerging economies. The wider socio-economic consequences of forced displacement have triggered intense global debates on how to develop appropriate and sustainable policy responses to these challenges.

The course is based on the ILO’s 2016 Guiding Principles on the access of refugees and other forcibly displaced persons to the labour market, ILO standards, other human-rights instruments and existing good practices.

This course is for policymakers and practitioners seeking to design and implement measures to facilitate the access of refugees and other forcibly displaced persons to the labour market, and to promote inclusive employment strategies and policies.
