Handbook on Establishing Effective Labour Migration Policies in Countries of Origin and Destination (Mediterranean Edition)
The aim of the Handbook is to assist States in their efforts to develop new policy approaches, solutions, and practical measures for better management of labour migration in countries of origin and of destination. It has been prepared primarily for use by decision-makers and practitioners in the OSCE area and countries served by IOM and ILO. It analyses effective policies and practices and draws upon examples from OSCE participating States as well as other countries that have considerable experience in this field.
The 13th OSCE Economic Forum, held in Prague, Czech Republic from 23 to 27 May 2005, provided the impetus for the joint OSCE, IOM and ILO initiative to produce a Handbook on Establishing Effective Labour Migration policies in Countries of Origin and of Destination.
While directed particularly towards concerned governments, we expect that this Handbook will also be useful to social partners, the media, non-governmental organizations and academia. Furthermore, we hope that the Handbook will inspire further dialogue and cooperation among national authorities and other stakeholders, and stimulate the exchange of information and good practice among States.
