Making Migration Work New thinking on labour migration needed As a High-Level Dialogue on International Migration and Development is taking place in New York, ILO Director General Guy Ryder discusses ways to improve labour migration governance for the benefit of all. (...) We need to move beyond debates in terms of numbers, flows and remittances, and towards concrete measures – with international labour standards as their core – that will improve labour migration governance. In doing so, we need to involve labour ministries, as well as employers’ and workers’ organizations - the key actors of the real economy. (...) These policies include: reducing discrimination; supporting migrant workers to use remittances to create new jobs back home; improving their access to key labour market institutions, including minimum wages; and introducing schemes that allow workers to regularize their status.

The ILO has been internationally and locally advocating not only for creating more jobs for those affected by the crisis, but increasingly for improving the quality of these jobs. “Without decent jobs, the chances to move from fragility to peace and resilience are modest, because decent work serves as an important bridge between the humanitarian and developmental dimensions of the response,” Jaradat said. (...) In Lebanon, the ILO is implementing a comprehensive Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) portfolio that addresses improved involvement of the private sector and ensures adequate pathways to employment in both the formal and the informal TVET provided. Improvements in the TVET provision will benefit an estimated 21,000 persons.

Briefing note | 30 September 2013 2010 - Migrant workers became free to legally join trade unions, vote in union elections, and participate in factory level worker committees leading to greater migrant worker participation in the garment union. (...)
