Guiding Labour Migration and Labour Mobility in Africa

Migration today is linked, directly or indirectly, to the world of work and the quest for decent work opportunities, either within countries or across international borders. Labour migration is growing more diverse and complex. Temporary labour migration is becoming more widespread. Many countries are now countries of origin, transit and destination at the same time. More women are joining the ranks of migrant workers and in some sectors, such as the care sector and domestic work, represent the majority of the migrant labour workforce. They can face discrimination, exploitation and abuse, including violence and harassment.
