Closing Date : 12 September 2018

Established in 1951, IOM is a Related Organization of the United Nations, and as the leading

non-governmental partners. IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the
benefit of all. It does so by providing services and advice to governments and migrants.

Context:
Within the context of working towards the ‘freer’ movement of skilled mobility within ASEAN,
IOM Thailand is operating a regional project, ‘Strengthening Capacity on Skills Recognition,
Recruitment and Labour Migration Information in Support of ASEAN Integration’ (‘the project’).
This consultancy is an extension of the work that has so far been done under the preceding

consultancy to be to develop the ‘Migration Information’ component of the project.

The project aims to enhance dialogue and coordination among ASEAN Member States (AMS),
and support the strengthening of capacity, frameworks and mechanisms to facilitate the
increased mobility of labour in ASEAN. The project has three main objectives: 1) improving
availability and sharing of information on labour migration and labour markets across ASEAN; 2)
enhancing the recruitment and employment services and information available to migrants with
regard to intra-regional migration in ASEAN; and 3) facilitating the referencing, quality
assurance and mutual recognition of workers’ skills and qualifications.

Per objectives (1) and (2), through a series of capacity building workshops and a consultative

policies and rights frameworks across AMS, national legislation and admission requirements,

market information management and migration policy. This workshop should link to and build
upon the content of the previous two workshops on ‘1. Gathering Intelligence on Labour Market
Needs’ and ‘2. Sectoral Approaches to Current and Mid-, to Long-term Skills Anticipation and
Matching’. This third workshop will focus on discussing ‘3. Forming effective policy responses to
labour market challenges and opportunities in ASEAN countries’.
• Facilitating and leading one (1) multi-stakeholder consultative meeting (mid-January 2019,
date TBC) to gather and obtain input regarding an ASEAN-wide, information sharing mechanism
(from a wider group of public and private stakeholders), in Manila, the Philippines (location
TBC).

• Following on from this consultative meeting, preparing a ‘template and action plan’ for the
creation of an ASEAN-wide web-portal, drawing on ideas and feasibilities expressed during the
consultative meeting, and research.
• The consultant will be responsible for finalizing the development of the curriculum and training
materials for the ‘capacity building’ workshop in November, and fully designing the training
materials/agenda for the January ‘consultative workshop’.

Additional Information

It is envisaged that the November workshop will cover the following topics:
• Discussing the interlinkages between and among labour market management, migration
policies and national development plans in ASEAN

benefits of migration for countries of origin and destination in ASEAN
• How to develop labour migration policies in the context of ASEAN economic integration as
envisioned by the ASEAN Economic Community and ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community’s 2025
Blueprints, and evaluate the progress
