Migrant workers

Application of Migration Policy for Decent Work for Migrant Workers

The project will help the Government of Bangladesh to operationalize policy and legal measures developed by earlier ILO initiatives, including, the Expatriates’ Welfare and Overseas Employment Policy 2016 and the Overseas Employment and Migrants Act 2013.

The initiative will help strengthen the institutions responsible for managing migration to deliver quality labour market information, occupational classification, pre-departure training accreditation, and welfare services abroad. It will also provide research and technical advisory support for strengthening labour negotiations for decent work as well as facilitate the engagement of stakeholders including workers and employers organizations in all processes.

Project outcomes

  • Men and women migrant workers are better protected through improved policy.
  • Public and private institutions contribute to safe migration and decent work for men and women migrants.
