Launch of the Regional Learning and Action Platform - A Knowledge Hub on Labour Migration in South Asia

Governance of Labour Migration in South and South-East Asia (GOALS) programme is launching the SOUTH ASIA CENTRE FOR LABOUR MOBILITY AND MIGRANTS (SALAM) - A knowledge hub supported by ILO, IOM and UN Women in collaboration with RMMRU, Bangladesh; CESLAM, Nepal; SDPI, Pakistan; IPS, Sri Lanka, and IIPS, India.

The South Asia Knowledge Hub is a collective initiative for the promotion of safe, orderly and regular migration and an innovative approach to knowledge sharing. The Hub will help to connect national, regional and global platforms and networks to create an access point for sharing information, best practices and knowledge.

A key focus of the regional knowledge hub will be to inform and foster evidence-based and gender-responsive policy dialogue. The Hub will also examine specific labour migration and mobility issues through a broader lens of decent work for migrant workers and the social, economic and political trends in the sub-region and beyond.

It is envisaged to be a ‘one-stop shop’ for policy makers, social partners, civil society organisations and other stakeholders.
