"Assessment of Legal Labour Migration Frameworks in Africa"

Labour migration has been gradually rising on the international agenda and has also been recognised as representing a significant opportunity for development. Significant labour migration flows of African nationals are intraregional and occur within the African continent. The latest continental assessment dates back to 2004, an update was needed to understand how regulations and frameworks in AU member states have adapted to contemporary labour migration. Thus Samuel Hall was commissioned by the ILO to identify gaps and assess legislations, regulations (including labour codes) in AU Member States and Regional Economic Committees (RECs) and practices affecting migrant workers’ access to labour rights and benefits.
