  • Share

The current situation caused by COVID-19 that exacerbates migrant vulnerabilities in terms of health, exploitation, freedom of movement and stigmatization. Assessing the challenges, reactions and lessons learnt from the pandemic, it is necessary to discuss and address how to move to a post-COVID-19 context where ethical recruitment and the "employer pays" model is implemented. The pandemic has opened up an opportunity to move the recruitment reform agenda forward to build back better towards fair and ethical recruitment practices.

In line with understanding the impact of COVID-19 on recruitment of migrant workers, Migrant Forum in Asia (MFA) in collaboration with the International Organization for Migration (IOM) is organizing a webinar: “Build Back Better: Advancing the Recruitment Reform Agenda Post COVID-19”.

The webinar will have the following objectives:

  1. Understand the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in the recruitment of migrant workers
  2. Provide a venue to discuss how to build back better post-COVID-19 in line with advancing the ethical recruitment of migrant workers.
The webinar will attempt to answer the following questions:

  1. What is the current situation of migrant workers whose recruitment was affected by COVID-19?
  2. Are there policies or directives in place to address the issues of migrants who were not deployed?
  3. How will the recruitment industry transform as things move to the “new normal”?
  4. What changes will be expected in the recruitment industry?
  5. How can this situation be used as an opportunity to advance the recruitment reform agenda toward fair and ethical recruitment practices?
