Following its in-depth discussion on the global refugee crisis and its labour market implications, the Governing Body decided that the agenda of its 326th Session (March 2016) should include, either:
(a) a sitting of the High-Level Section to hold a discussion on an ILO response to the global refugee crisis and to discuss relevant labour migration issues, to which representatives of other relevant agencies could be invited; or
The final choice would be taken by the Screening Group when setting the Governing Body agenda for the 326th Session.
The Governing Body further decided that in the above context the discussion at its 326th Session would also cover ways and means whereby the Office could strengthen development cooperation activities in refugees’ and economic migrants’ countries of origin.
