Background and RationaleThe BRIDGE Project supports the Philippines’ commitment to the Global Compact on Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM), specifically on facilitating fair and ethical recruitment and safeguarding conditions for decent work and cooperating to facilitate safe and dignified return of migrants as well as sustainable reintegration. The project is geared towards creating positive effects of migration by increasing government capacity for regular migration and decent work.
OutcomesUnder the ILO, BRIDGE banks on and complements the gains of other migration projects that have been implemented by the organization– the FAIR Phase 2 and the SAFE and FAIR – thus, the synergy among the three projects fosters impactful realization of the following outcomes:
1. fair and ethical recruitment and sustainable reintegration of migrant workers are promoted through whole-of-government and evidence-based approach that is gender-responsive;
2. improved policies and practices pertaining to fair and ethical recruitment, and sustainable reintegration that are informed by evidence based data and international standards; and
3. improved alignment of policy and practices to GCM objectives on reintegration on fair and ethical recruitment.
