2014 GMG Publication on Migration and Youth: Challenges and Opportunities

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

This Thematic Report by the Global Migration Group (GMG) offers a comprehensive overview of the many facets of youth migration, from contexts of rural marginalization and environmental degradation where many young migrants begin their journey to the challenges they face in countries of destination, such as realising their rights, accessing decent work and social protection. It discusses a range of specific issues, ranging from employment to gender to health, education and participation. The report is intended as an action-oriented contribution to the migration policy debate. In addition to elaborating on perspectives of 12 UN bodies with GMG membership, it also includes chapters prepared by the OECD, scholars, and non-governmental organisations devoted to youth and migration issues. Going beyond a rich and thorough background introduction, chapters include examples of good practices, succinct messages and concrete, forward-thinking policy options for realising the opportunities offered by youth migration.
