Today there are an estimated  244 million international migrants around the world, the majority of whom are migrant workers.  Globalization, demographic shifts, conflicts, income inequalities and climate change will encourage ever more people to cross borders in search of employment and security.  Yet, the migration process entails complex challenges in terms of governance, migrant workers' protection, migration and development linkages and international cooperation.

The  Labour Migration Academy (LMA) aims to provide you with advanced knowledge and enhance your capacity as a key migration actor to better understand labour migration challenges and opportunities in a changing political, economic and social context. This personalized one week course covers a wide range of labour migration cross-cutting themes, such as men and women migrant worker protection, labour migration governance and development.

After the success of the first  five editions and the high demand for the training of key participants from the Africa region, ITC-ILO is pleased to offer the LMA, for the first time  "outside their campus", in Johannesburg (South Africa).

This course will be offered in English and French. You will find the links on the right hand side frame to the course website and the necessary information to register. If you need further information, do not hesitate to contact ITC-ILO at this email address: migration@itcilo.org.

Marie Chauvet was forced to flee Haiti after publishing works critical of the race and class structures undergirding Haitian society and politics during the totalitarian regime of Fran├žois "Papa Doc" Duvalier. Her most well-known work, the trilogy Love, Anger, and Madness, was first published in Paris in 1968 with the support of Simone de Beauvoir, bringing her much acclaim and putting her life in great danger. Exiled from Haiti, leaving her affluent family behind, Chauvet spent the final years of her life in New York City, where she worked as a maid and died in relative poverty in 1973.
