South-South labour Mobility in the Pacific: An assessment

— theme: Labour migration policy
— country: Global
— type: Reports

Labour migration within the Pacific region has not been studied in depth despite the existing arrangements promoting the temporal movement of workers. Evidence suggests that there is a shortage of skilled and semi-skilled labour force in the region in particular professional areas, which has led to the development of international labour mobility schemes. This report identifies key strengths and weaknesses of these processes in order to improve the circulation of skills to promote human development. In particular, labour mobility arrangements should rely on a more accurate analysis of the situation to match shortages with labour surpluses and encourage a more balanced approach for the movement of natural persons.
