Policy framework: Sustainable Migration in the East African Region

To get a better sense of the actual realities in respect of migration in East Africa, the East African Employees Organization (EAEO) with the support of the International Labour Organization (ILO) through the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) commissioned a mapping exercise to identify the key issues from an employer’s perspective. The exercise focused on three countries United Republic of Tanzania, Kenya, and Uganda. The central challenge of the strategic approach of EBMOs in the region is to exemplify through policy advocacy and practice how the role of labour migration can be, in a broader social and economic context, beneficial, sustainable and positively impactful.
