An action-oriented, highly participative approach will be used, with particular attention devoted to sharing international experiences with a view to their adaptation and practical application. Particular attention will be paid to the presentation of “good practices” through case studies reflecting experiences already gained locally and internationally.
An innovative e-learning experience combining self-paced modules, webinars and discussions, case studies, forum debates, role-play exercises and group work using up-to-date learning methods and technologies.
Learning begins at own pace, continues through high-quality, engaging “real time” sessions and ends with an individual assignment.
Practitioners from different parts of the world and different background will join the e-learning to share with participants their concrete experience and actions on how establishing fair recruitment practices.
Although the 169 million migrant workers of the 281 million international migrants worldwide contribute fully to the economies of their host and home countries, migrant workers are often excluded from social protection coverage. Migrant workers compared to nationals working their entire lives in one country, face major legal and practical obstacles in accessing social protection benefits. They may be denied access or have limited access to social security because of their status or nationality or due to the insufficient duration of their periods of employment and residence. In addition, the maintaining their earned benefits and benefits in the course of acquisition. This is particularly important in the case of long-term benefits (invalidity, old-age and survivor's) where qualifying periods may be considerable.
