Migration and Forced Displacement

The Migration and Forced Displacement Section aims to enhance the safety, well-being and livelihood prospects of vulnerable and disadvantaged migrants, their families, and the communities they live in.

The Migration and Forced Displacement Section works along three strategic lines: safe labour migration, inclusion and social cohesion, and migrants’ contribution to sustainable development.

The section:

  • fosters migrants’ access to decent work and protection along the entire migration cycle (safe labour migration). 
  • promotes the access of migrants, including displaced persons and host communities, to inclusive basic services and socio-economic inclusion opportunities, especially in urban contexts (inclusion and social cohesion). 
  • encourages migrants’ contribution to the sustainable development of their countries of origin through the transfer of remittances, investments, know-how and social capital (migrants’ contribution to sustainable development).
