OSCE Guide on Gender-Sensitive Labour Migration Policies
OSCE (The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe) published the first international Guide on Gender-Sensitive Labour Migration Policies.Labour migration has become one of the most visible and vital concerns in ensuring stability and economic progress, it has therefore moved to the top of the policy agenda in many countries. However, little attention has been given to the fact that more women, as active contributors to the economy in countries of destination, are leaving their countries of origin than ever before, and are experiencing this process differently from men. The Guide aims at presenting good practices and providing tools on how to shape gender-sensitive labour migration processes. Through this Guide, the aim is to encourage states, particularly those in the OSCE area, to include gender-sensitive measures in their labour migration policies. It has been prepared in particular for use by policymakers and practitioners. In so doing, it is hoped that labour migration policies will be developed in a more gender-just way in accordance with OSCE
participating States’ common commitments and values.
