    07 March 2019

    17 February 2019

    Migration today is linked, directly or indirectly, to the world of work and the quest for decent work opportunities, either within countries or across international borders. Labour migration is growing more diverse and complex. Temporary labour migration is becoming more widespread. Many countries are now countries of origin, transit and destination at the same time. More women are joining the ranks of migrant workers and in some sectors, such as the care sector and domestic work, represent the majority of the migrant labour workforce. They can face discrimination, exploitation and abuse, including violence and harassment.

  9. Labour Migration and Migrant Workers in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

    17 February 2019

    The diverse labour market profiles and changing flows and patterns of migration suggests that migration is largely a labour market and decent work issue.1 Consequently, there can be no discussion of international migration in the future global agenda on sustainable development without consideration of decent work. Indeed, in his report on fair migration, presented to the International Labour Conference in May 2014, the ILO Director-General observes that “the UN post-2015 development agenda is an opportunity to give renewed impetus to the shared responsibility to promote decent jobs and social protection everywhere”2 including for migrant workers.
