Mechanisms for Labour Migration in the Caribbean

Thematic Area
Labor mobility and human development
The Caribbean

This report provides an overview of the mechanisms that facilitate regular labour migration in the Caribbean, as these mechanisms constitute important elements in regional and national migration governance structures. This study demonstrates that while there have been significant efforts to establish regular means for labour migration in the last decade, key challenges still remain for incorporating these mechanisms into comprehensive labour migration policies, providing clear and reliable information regarding these mechanisms to migrant workers, and mitigating the different risks faced by migrant workers in the phases of their migration cycle. This report facilitates a deeper understanding of these challenges and identifies good practices and recommendations to strengthen labour mechanisms in the region as part of policies that maximize the benefits of labour migration for all stakeholders involved.
