Apresentação do curso

"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 policy makers to design and implement labour migration policies through access to tools and instruments for evidence-based policy making on labour migration and ensuring policy coherence. The training will offer an innovative e-learning platform for open dialogue between participants from various ministries, workers' and employers' organizations representatives and other relevant stakeholders to build their capacity and skills to promote policy coherence at national and regional level with regards to labour migration. This specialized course enables you to join a virtual global network of labour migration practitioners flexibly and without needing to travel."
