Introduction to the course

In 2014, the ILO launched the "Fair Recruitment Initiative" to help prevent human trafficking, protect the rights of workers (including migrant workers) from abusive and fraudulent practices during the recruitment and placement process, reduce the cost of labour migration and enhance development gains. This course aims to (1) foster the sharing of promising national and international recruitment practices that meet internationally recognized human-rights and labour standards, (2) enhance understanding among key actors of how to strengthen regulatory and enforcement mechanisms designed to address abusive and fraudulent recruitment practices, (3) promote the dissemination of fair business standards and practices and (4) promote mechanisms for the empowerment and protection of workers.
