Practical Handbook on the Management of Labour Migration

2013 - 2020

The MIgration EU eXpertise initiative (MIEUX) launched a handbook to support the efforts of the Ministry of Labour, Employment and Social Security (MLESS) in Myanmar in enhancing their management of labour migration. Training sessions were conducted for the staff of MLESS at the central and local levels to develop the handbook. Upon completion, MLESS staff were equipped with skills to develop and implement information campaigns on labour migration and provide services to migrant workers. A second initiative was conducted on Capacity Building on Labour Migration to support the Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population (MoLIP) in Myanmar to understand the public authorities of partner countries so as to better manage migration. This initiative included bilateral meetings; workshops on labour migration management for staff at the operational level; and sessions on ethical recruitment, prevention of exploitation and protection of migrant workers’ rights. A draft prevention and protection plan was produced at the end of the initiative in November 2019.
