Leveraging advanced technology to improve labour mobility governance
This paper was prepared by Rebecca Napier-Moore and Anna Olsen and presented at session two of the Abu Dhabi Dialogue with the theme: Leveraging advanced technology to improve labour mobility governance on 25 May 2021.
This paper briefly examines what technological and digital options exist to promote and streamline compliant labour selection and job-matching, what the opportunities for expansion or gaps are, and how labour migration stakeholders may approach the growing demand for technological platforms within labour migration governance frameworks. To do so, the paper draws on survey data from a questionnaire distributed by the Abu Dhabi Dialogue Secretariat, good practices globally and secondary research. The paper was prepared in response to a request from the Secretariat, and adds to the body of work delivered by the Abu Dhabi Dialogue through Theme 2 of its research strategy on leveraging advanced technology to improve labour mobility governance.
