ILO-IOM Regional conference on making breakthrough in the implementation of Ethical and Professional Recruitment

The ILO, IOM and the EU convene Asian recruitment agencies in Manila to discuss ways to improve migration governance systems, ethical recruitment and the professionalization of the industry under the auspices of the 2nd Regional Conference of the Alliance of Asian Associations of Overseas Employment Service Providers (AAA-OESP).

This two-day regional conference serves as a follow-up regional forum for national associations of recruitment agencies in Asia, the first of which took place in 2008 in Manila.

The event will involve leaders from the private recruitment associations, representatives from the public recruitment bureaus from Colombo Process member states (CPMS) and some receiving countries in Europe.

Key resource people, including the International Confederation of Private Employment Agencies (CIETT) and the Alliance for the International Ethical Recruitment Practices in the USA, and various international experts will contribute to the discussion on models and tools for the enhancement of ethical recruitment practices, in an increasingly complex migratory environment.
