Labour Migration for Employment - A Status Report for Nepal: 2013/2014

Over the past decade, Nepal has experienced a surge in out-migration for foreign employment to various destination countries.

This report is an important step to help government agencies and other stakeholders work towards the effective regulatory mechanisms that both protect and enhance migrant workers’ welfare.

A Clear Agenda for Migrant Education in Europe

Education remains a critical element of government policy in the twenty-first century. A society with strong educational outcomes will realise people’s full potential and give them a better chance for economic and social development. Strong education systems allow societies to become equitable and meritocratic at the same time, facilitating both social mobility and social inclusion. Education empowers people to participate fully in the community and strengthens democracies.

Language Support for Youth with a Migrant Background: Policies that Effectively Promote Inclusion

It is crucial for children of migrant background in Europe to become proficient in their host country's main language of instruction. Lack of proficiency stands in the way of students' ability to comprehend and follow lessons, which in turn can lead to poor academic performance, lack of interest in education, and even behavioral problems. To avoid such outcomes for migrant children, schools should provide sufficient support for youth to learn and master the language of instruction.

L’initiative Conjointe pour la Migration et le Développement (ICMD) souhaite partager avec vous cette histoire publiée sur le site web du PNUD au Maroc (http://www.ma.undp.org/content/morocco/fr/home.html) dans le cadre du Programme Oasis Sud (POS), initié par l’Agence du Sud et le PNUD, visant à promouvoir un développement local intégré. La trajectoire personnelle d’Hassan Taharou montre en quoi des initiatives de développement local dans un pays tel que le Maroc peuvent constituer des alternatives efficaces et durables à l’émigration, et contribuer davantage au développement du pays tout en préservant ses ressources et en le rendant plus attractif.

 

Cet article raconte l’histoire de Hassan Taharou, un candidat à l’émigration qui a pu bénéficier d’un programme local pour devenir entrepreneur dans son village d’origine, et ainsi accroître le développement local par le biais d’activités d’écotourisme.

The Effect of Low - Skilled Labor Migration on the Host Economy

According to the OECD (2010), the advanced countries are home to 88 million migrants who have no tertiary educations, accounting for 76 percent of their total foreign-born population. As a consequence, migration of low-skilled workers into these countries remains a highly contentious issue, despite high demand for such workers to carry out a range of essential tasks, especially services.

Migration and Development at the local Level

Increasingly, municipalities are acting as autonomous partners for just and sustainable development worldwide. They are doing this on the one hand because their local civil society actors are demanding an active role in shaping municipal development
cooperation. Yet they are also doing it because they are assuming responsibility for globally sustainable development, to which they can contribute their own specific expertise. The Local Agenda 21 and the Millennium Development Goals – as well
as the Post-2015 Agenda – form the framework in which this is taking place.

Migration and Development at the Local Level: „Everyone benefits!“

International engagement is reinforced by the overall increase in importance of the local level in development cooperation, as reflected for instance in the Report on Local Authorities and Development Cooperation published by the European Parliament in 2007. When the heads of government of Germany’s Länder (‘federal states’) met at their annual conference in Dresden in 2008, they adopted a resolution pointing out that responsibility for development cooperation should be shared between the federation, the Länder and the local authorities.
