Recruitment to reintegration in migration governance
Bridging Recruitment to Reintegration in Migration Governance: Philippines (BRIDGE)
This Joint Programme helps ensure that government initiatives for fair and ethical recruitment and reintegration are evidence-based, gender-responsive and coordinated, and seeks to translate evidence into policy and practices on recruitment and reintegration. Funded by the Migration Multi-Partner Trust Fund (MPTF), BRIDGE is being implemented in partnership with the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and UN Women, in coordination with the UN Resident Coordinator Office and the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA).
Background and rationaleThe BRIDGE Project supports the Philippines’ commitment to the Global Compact on Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM), specifically Objective 6 (facilitating fair and ethical recruitment and safeguarding conditions for decent work) and Objective 21 (cooperating to facilitate safe and dignified return of migrants as well as sustainable reintegration). The project is geared towards creating positive effects of migration by increasing government capacity for regular migration and decent work.

2. Improved policies and practices pertaining to fair and ethical recruitment, and sustainable reintegration that are informed by evidence-based data and international standards; and
