Joint forces for better labor mobility
The Rome Dialogues on Jobs and Migration
The Rome Dialogues on Jobs and Migration are a platform for open exchange on practical, evidence-based solutions which improve the job outcomes of cross-border labor mobility.
The exchange takes place during the Rome Dialogues events, which are hybrid (face-to-face and virtual) events that target key policy questions, challenge current practices, present new approaches, and include all stakeholders’ voices. The goal is to expand the reach of evidence-based solutions to foster an informed debate which is no longer dominated by one-sided arguments.
The Dialogues will further culminate in an Agenda for Change, which articulates the various perspectives of the migration debate and offers a menu of evidence-based policy options for jobs and cross-border mobility.
THE UNIQUE APPROACH
The Rome Dialogues promote more and better-informed solutions through a unique approach which combines a focus on evidence, a multi-stakeholder perspective, and a mediagenic format:
- Evidence-based solutions - To better ground regional and global narratives on migration in rigorous, empirical evidence about the challenges and solutions for jobs and migration.
- Mediagenic format - To encourage a dynamic exchange and successfully engage a broad audience
- Multi-Stakeholder Perspective - To convey the voices from migrants, and different stakeholders in sending countries and receiving countries, and showcase the value of approaches that integrate all perspectives.
- RESULT: Informed solutions - To supply practitioners and decisionmakers with evidence-based references that can support their work, thereby closing the loop between data producers, researchers, policymakers, and the broader public.
