The importance of skills development and recognition for migrants and refugees

This World Refugee Week, let’s not forget the importance of skills development and recognition for migrants and refugees. Read more about JET’s scoping study for the ILO and IGAD on The Potential of Skills Development and Recognition for Regulated Labour Mobility in the IGAD Region.
Modern society attributes great value to the formal recognition of learning through qualifications as the agreed and trusted proxy for the knowledge, skills and competencies of individuals. But migrants and refugees are unlikely to have documentary evidence of formally acquired skills and non-formal learning.
