We believe labor mobility that allows workers from poorer countries to access job opportunities in rich countries has the potential of creating billions in income gains to workers, sending countries and receiving countries

What is LaMP

Labor Mobility Partnerships (LaMP) is a new organization currently incubating at the Center for Global Development. LaMP aims to be the first organization which actively works to increase rights-respecting temporary labor mobility, ensuring workers can access employment opportunities abroad. The long-term goal is unlocking billions in income gains to people from filling needed jobs.


Our team, led by development economist Lant Pritchett, is passionate about labor mobility and has significant experience working on both research and operations in the mobility field. Check out the team working on the design and set up of LaMP.
