Expanding Labor Market Access for Refugees and Forced Migrants Advisory Group
The Center for Global Development and Refugees International’s advisory group is composed of leaders and experts on refugee and forced migrant economic inclusion and labor market access. They will play a key role in guiding and amplifying our initiative’s three pillars:
generating evidence on the economic, social, and protection effects of increasing labor market access;
developing recommendations to maximize its benefits, particularly for women and vulnerable populations, and mitigate challenges for both refugees and forced migrants, and their host communities; and
supporting efforts to mobilize the private sector to make the business case for increased labor market access.
