In addition, we would also like to make an observation regarding the subject of Family. My country attaches great importance to the issue of the empowerment of the family, and we firmly believe that family is the basic unit of society, and plays a pivotal role in societies and in overall development efforts. Therefore, we would have liked to see the subject of family reflected in the text, however we would not like to see it politicized as it has been during the negotiations. In reference to the paragraphs which deal with the subjects of sex education and reproductive rights, my country would like to further re-emphasize one of the most important principles of the Cairo Programme of Action, namely the sovereign right of countries to implement recommendations and policies in a manner consistent with their national legislation and development priorities, and in total respect of their cultural and ethical values, and religious backgrounds, and in line with internationally recognized human rights.

. – Migrant workers tend to be concentrated in sectors which are more sensitive to business cycle fluctuations; – Migrant workers have on average less secure contractual arrangements; – Migrant workers may be subject to selective layoffs. Migrants suffer more in the downturn… Unemployment among immigrants: how much higher (in % points) is it? (...) •The main brake on labour migration is demand •Numerical limits for temporary migration have been lowered (Korea, Italy, Spain) •Shortage occupation lists have been reduced and labour market tests reinforced (UK, Spain, Canada, Australia) •Temporary permits may be more difficult to renew •Non-discretionary flows have been subjected to some new limits •New voluntary return migration programmes have been developed 7 Medium and long-term consequences • Expected impacts on composition of migration flows – Family reunification: Where family reunification is subject to income limits, it might be delayed during periods of unfavourable labour market conditions. – Humanitarian flows: Other factors may be more important but there may be an increasing risk of abuse of the asylum channel. – Irregular migration: Stock of irregular migrants could increase as some temporary migrants who lose their jobs overstay, but in the meantime, irregular migration flows may decline as job opportunities become scarcer. – Expected impact on the integration of immigrants – Recent immigrants – Displaced migrant workers 8 OECD Recommendations In the current context, OECD governments should consider: • i) Maintaining, if not strengthening, their integration programmes; • ii) Reinforcing their effort to fight discrimination in hiring and layoffs; • iii) Ensuring that active labour market policies reach new entrants into the labour market, including recent immigrants, and workers displaced from declining industries; • iv) Adapting their temporary labour migration systems so as to be more responsive to short-term economic shocks; • v) Reducing obstacles to return migration rather than providing financial support through voluntary return-assisted programmes; • vi) Paying special attention to the economic situation in less developed countries, especially where remittances are significant. 9 10 www.oecd.org/els/migration/imo (English) www.oecd.org/els/migrations/pmi (Français)
