Guideline 9.1 of the ILO General Principles and Operational Guidelines on Fair Recruitment (ILO GPOG) recommends that states “ensure that ministries and departments, agencies and other public institutions that oversee recruitment and business practices cooperate closely”. In origin states, this normally requires particularly close collaboration between the labour and foreign ministries, while in destination countries, the mandate for governance of fair recruitment is often shared across labour and interior ministries.
Law enforcement and justice ministries should be involved in both origin and destination states, in order to provide access to justice and criminal investigation where necessary. In some countries, there are divisions of responsibility between national and regional governments.
This indicator examines the impact of the most critical forms of intra-government cooperation in each migration corridor.
