Publication Date: 20 Feb 2024
Source: ILO
Through PROSPECTS programme, the ILO has undertaken a national policy, legislative and regulatory frameworks and practice review. This review includes an analysis of current legislation, policies and regulatory frameworks, and how their implementation works in practice across the eight PROSPECTS countries to support the governments in policy, legislation, regulatory development and/or reform as appropriate.

Through this review, the ILO seeks to explore further opportunities to strengthen policy, legislative and institutional environments and mechanisms, working closely with host governments and other national actors and partners.

By providing a comprehensive and robust picture of the situation on the ground, the report offers actionable areas of intervention to support policy development, reform and implementation capacity of the host governments, other national and local actors, including the social partners, to enhance inclusion and protection.

The role of employer and business membership organizations in promoting the labour market integration of refugees
Publication Date: 22 Dec 2022
Source: ILO
This brief highlights the role that Employers' and Business Member Organizations (EBMOs) can play in promoting the labour market integration of refugees. It showcases good practices of EBMOs from around the world, and how these organizations have worked with their members, government, workers’ organizations and other stakeholders to facilitate the labour market integration of refugees.

The content of the brief was developed through a two-fold approach: first, a global stocktaking exercise of relevant EBMOs’ experiences was undertaken, covering Colombia, Denmark, Ecuador, Egypt, France, Germany, Italy, Jordan, Türkiye and Uganda. Second, based on the depth of information available and the diversity of displacement crises, four countries were selected – Colombia, Germany, Türkiye and Uganda – to develop country-specific case studies with an overview of the displacement context and the displacement response of EBMOs, and a conclusion that summarizes the good practices of EBMOs from around the world.

These are organized into six themes:
(1) advocating for evidence-based policies;
(2) making the business case for hiring and working with refugees;
(3) matching refugee labour with employers’ needs;
(4) providing employers with legal and human resource support;
(5) publicly recognizing employers’ good practices; and
(6) engaging with development cooperation partners.

Occupations and skills assessment for youth in selected refugee settlements of Isingiro, Arua and Madi Okollo districts in Uganda
Publication Date: 23 Aug 2022
Source: ILO
The assessment was on occupations and skills gaps for youth in selected refugee settlements (Isingiro, Arua and Madi Okollo) in Uganda. This was due to the fact that while Africa’s economic growth and youth population is rapidly growing and expected to double to over 830 million by 2050, there endure significant challenges and an urgent need to promote inclusive economic transformation and jobs-induced growth to improve the quality of life for all.
