Labour market access for migrants in Libya and the impact of COVID-19
The AMEM study in Libya, entitled ‘Labour market access for migrants in Libya and the impact of COVID-19’, wishes to provide a better understanding of the labour market in Libya with a focus on the situation of migrant workers. It shows the close link between recruitment channels and working conditions. It specifically underlines the importance of regulating recruitment in line with international labour standards, including migrant workers.
It allowed a better understanding of (1) migrants’ access to employment and the role of labour intermediaries, (2) employment characteristics and conditions of migrant workers, and (3) the impact of COVID-19 on migrant’s ability to access the labour market in Libya and to sustain their livelihoods.
