Mission on the ILO Project “Integrated Programme on Fair Recruitment (FAIR)”
Ms Helene Harroff-Tavel, Ms Alix Nasri and Mr Guy Tchami from ILO Geneva will conduct a mission in the Philippines to meet with relevant stakeholders for ILO’s new labour migration project. The six-day mission will include consultations with Philippine government agencies, trade unions, employers organizations, civil society organizations, cooperatives and media agencies in order to introduce the project’s Philippine components and collect inputs regarding the project design and strategy.
The FAIR project is a global initiative funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation. It seeks to:
establish fair recruitment corridors to prevent abuses and exploitation of migrant workers;
provide migrant workers with access to reliable information and enhanced services; and
conduct innovative research and disseminate knowledge on ethical recruitment.
Pilot initiatives are proposed to be implemented in the Philippines, Tunisia and Jordan.
