Improved policy and regulatory systems on labour migration
This is implemented at Member State and REC levels, considering its gender dimension and the relevant international human rights and labour standards.
- Enhanced gender responsive labour migration policy and regulatory frameworks in MSs and RECs, considering relevant international human rights and labour rights and existing general migration and labour migration specific frameworks in Africa and globally including the AU MPFA and the GCM. This output aims to support the AU MS and RECs to develop their own national and regional labour migration regulatory and policy frameworks taking into consideration relevant international and regional human rights including labour rights and existing general migration and labour migration specific frameworks in Africa and globally, including the AU MPFA, a joint IOM/ILO Guidance note and the Global Compact for Migration. It also supports AU MS and RECs to domesticate regional and international labour migration policy and regulatory frameworks. To achieve this output AUC, IOM and ILO will work together with other international organizations, social and development partners, AU MS, RECs and others. The RECs, in consultation with member states, will select the AU MS from each REC. IOM and ILO will provide support to these selected AU MS in a complementary manner by mobilizing on their specific mandates and expertise.
- Active international cooperation to build the necessary cooperation framework on labour migration with non-AU Member states and other regions developed. The objective of these activities is to build international cooperation frameworks with the Middle East countries and the EU through consultative dialogues and workshops. IOM (through SIDA funding) will lead the implementation of all activities under this output and covers all costs related to the implementation of the activities. IOM will work in close cooperation and coordination with the AUC and ILO towards the achievement of the output.
- Strengthening protection of migrant workers including through international cooperation. Organizing consultative and training workshops for Labour Attachés and Developing a Model bilateral labour agreement with third countries are jointly implemented by IOM and ILO (through SIDA funding). IOM (through SIDA funding) will lead the implementation of Developing generic modules for pre-departure and post-arrival orientation programmes for MSs based on existing models and best practices.
