The Global Policy Network (GPN) on recruitment is a State-led collaboration that brings together policy makers, regulators, and government practitioners to (1) discuss key challenges related to the cross-border recruitment of migrant workers; (2) identify and co-develop solutions to recruitment-related challenges; and (3) highlight and share promising practices in the field of policy, regulation, enforcement, and protection.

The Network creates a space for governments to discuss and solve the challenges they encounter in regulating cross border recruitment and protecting migrant workers. It is a vehicle for policy dialogue and exchange that is solutions- and impact-oriented.

The GPN supports Member States’ commitments to Objective 6 of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration as well as Sustainable Development Goals 8 on Decent Work, 10 on Reduced Inequalities and 17 on Partnerships.
