Welcome to the ITC-ILO International Labour Migration website!

Migration is an important global phenomenon. Most of the world’s international migrants – estimated at 232 million in 2013 by the UN Population Division, with women comprising about 50 per cent – are migrant workers (those persons who migrate for employment) and their families. In 2010, the ILO estimated migrant workers to number around 106 million, who together with their families comprise about 90 per cent of all international migrants.

 

While labour migration can serve as an engine for development, the process of migration often leaves migrant workers and their families in a vulnerable position. There is a need to come up with solutions to minimize the negative impact that migration could have on migrants themselves as well as their host and origin societies. To address this, The International Training Centre of the ILO organises training courses to facilitate the capacity building of constituents working in the field of labour migration, with the aim of extending Decent Work to all migrant workers, bearing in mind the positive contributions migration can make towards economic and social development.

The 2010 World Migration Report defines “mainstreaming migration into development planning” as the “process for integrating migration issues in a balanced manner into the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of policies and programmes in any sphere related to development and poverty reduction.”  This concept has increasingly been recognized as an efficient policy and institutional approach to maximizing the benefits of migration.

What former participants say about our courses

  • “The course on international labour migration was very enlightening. We learned about labour migration, public policy and social actors as well as the relevant international agreements and conventions. The course was also a great opportunity to meet colleagues from different continents who work with labour issues on a daily basis. During the course we also got to discuss the migration situation in our own countries and learned from each other’s experiences. In addition, the agenda of the course was well organised, and the venue was nice.”
