The Regional Fair Migration Project in the Middle East (FAIRWAY project) supports implementation of the ILO Fair Migration Agenda in the region (endorsed by the Abu Dhabi Dialogue in November 2014), and other ILO projects in addressing the decent work deficits of migrant workers. In particular, the project promotes fair migration (including fair recruitment) and contributes to combating forced labour and trafficking for labour exploitation.
Strategy and ObjectivesThe FAIRWAY project has a three-pronged strategy to:
- Promote labour migration-related policy change for fair migration that is informed by evidence-based policy advice;
- support improved implementation of laws and policies by strengthening institutional mechanisms and operational modalities in target countries; and
- build a more conducive environment for decent work of male and female migrant workers by addressing discriminatory attitudes and actions towards migrant workers.
Timeframe: January 2016 - December 2018
