Over 50 policy-makers and practitioners attend the second Jobs and Migration Core Course.
Representatives of over 25 countries are participating in the 2018 Jobs and Migration Core Course. The two-week core course is taught by recognized experts from the World Bank and other agencies, international organizations, academics, and policy makers from around the world. It employs a mix of learning methods, including presentations, hands-on exercises, case-studies, and group projects.
The course aims to provide an in-depth understanding of the conceptual and practical issues involved in the design and implementation of Jobs strategies and interventions. Experts from in and outside the World Bank bring a cross-sectoral approach, including perspectives on trade and competitiveness, macroeconomics, agriculture, and urbanization. Participants will leave with models, tools for assessment, and better understanding of frameworks for creating policy and programming to create jobs in the formal sector; improve the quality of jobs in the informal sector; and help connect individuals to jobs or move from low to higher quality jobs. The course will also explore tools and diagnostics to provide evidence of the economic benefits of migration, to manage vulnerabilities and risks during the process of migration, and to create an appropriate mix of public-private mix of initiatives that create win-win outcomes.
