The publication Improving Access to Labour Market Information for Migrants and Employers investigates information strategies and channels most commonly used for employment matching through migration. It identifies the main information-related obstacles facing respectively, employers willing to hire migrant workers – both from abroad and inside the country – and prospective and resident migrants looking for available job opportunities. It proposes appropriate policy responses, including at the pre-departure stage, to overcome those obstacles and enhance the potential of international migration to address labour and skill shortages.
