    22 June 2021

    The “Africa Regional Fair Recruitment Report: The recruitment of migrant workers to, within and from Africa” comprises an expanded view of the recruitment of African migrant workers to disentangle the recruitment, migration and employment aspects of the process.

It recommends that such dimensions be distinguished according to countries of origin and of employment, as well as by occupation, in order to respond to challenges encountered by migrant workers in terms of personal characteristics such as gender and level of education. Those dimensions are inter-connected, but may vary in relation to each other and can change over time.
