The fourth of the planned seven national-level training courses on labour migration policy and practice, organised by IOM in cooperation with ILO, is starting in Belgrade on Monday, 19th October 2009 and will last a week.
The course targets policy makers, social partners and practitioners. It is based on the OSCE-IOM-ILO Handbook on Establishing Effective Labour Migration Policies in Countries of Origin and Destination and constitutes an integral part of the project Capacity Building, Information and Awareness Raising towards Promoting Orderly Migration in the Western Balkans, funded by the European Commission AENEAS 2006 programme and the governments of Switzerland, Germany, Italy and Liechtenstein.
This national training event is a follow-up to the Regional Workshop on Establishing Labour Migration Policies in Countries of Origin and Destination and International Collaboration in the Western Balkans held in Tirana, Albania on 9-10 February 2009. So far training courses were organised in Croatia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Montenegro and further training events are planned to follow in Bosnia & Herzegovina, Kosovo and Albania.
The training sessions are delivered by IOM and ILO senior migration specialists. Additional modules are provided by experts from the Ministry of Economy and Regional Development as well as the Swiss Federal Office for Migration.
