Migration policies are adopted with a wide range of objectives and have not consistently incorporated labour market assessments. In many countries, labour ministries and employers’ and workers’ organizations are not allowed to engage in dialogue on migration in a meaningful way.
This practical guidance is part of a broader ILO effort to foster coherence among employment, education/training and migration policies and address constituents’ demands in this area. It is based on the existing volume of literature on this subject in public policy and draws on ILO experience and lessons learned globally. It is a building block towards further country analyses and a guide and training manual in the future.
