Academy on Labour Migration, Edition 2023

From 10 to 21 July 2023, the “Academy on Labour Migration (LMA)” will take place in Turin, Italy.

This initiative, co-organized by the International Labour Organization (ILO) and ITCILO, will offering participants a unique opportunity to benefit from a diversified training package. They will explore fair and effective labour migration governance, examine the linkages between migration and sustainable development, and learn about instruments and mechanisms for protecting the rights of migrant workers, refugees, and their families, even in times of crisis. The participants will have the freedom to tailor-make their own learning experience by choosing from several elective courses proposed, thus creating an innovative and dynamic learning environment.

The LMA aims to provide advanced knowledge and enhance the capacity of key migration actors to better understand the challenges and opportunities of labour migration in a changing political, economic, and social context. It will cover a wide range of labour migration cross-cutting themes, such as the protection of men and women migrant workers, fair and effective labour migration governance, crisis-induced migration and displacement, and the linkages between migration and sustainable development.

In addition, as part of this Academy, the participants will discuss the South-South cooperation approach to labour migration governance and the protection of migrant workers’ rights. This discussion will contribute to fostering collaboration and knowledge exchange among countries in the Global South, recognizing their shared experiences and challenges in addressing labour migration issues.
