Description: 

Labour Migration has moved to the top of the policy agenda of many countries of origin and destination. Both public and private stakeholders are increasingly turning to IOM for expert support and facilitation of regulated labour migration and direct assistance to the migrants. Governments at both ends of the migration spectrum are developing regulatory mechanisms to manage labour mobility to their individual and mutual benefit, and that of the migrant. IOM’s approach to labour migration is to foster synergies between labour migration and development and to promote legal avenues of labour migration as an alternative to irregular migration.
