Labor mobility is a complex topic, with a limited and fragmented knowledge base on effective practice. Partnerships are both legally and operationally complicated, as they require laws, operations, and actors to be aligned across borders. Both LaMP and its partners have experience in design and implementation of these partnerships, as well as how to adapt them to new contexts. 

Through technical support, LaMP aims to:

  • Provide an analytical framework for building labor mobility systems at needed scale
  • Provide technical and operational support on the design and implementation of partnerships
  • Reduce political and reputational risks for partners by agreeing to pragmatic, operational standards for the treatment and protection of workers abroad

LaMP aims to create and curate a repository of existing knowledge and resources on technical questions of design and implementation, and assist in applying and adapting current good practice to their context. On topics where there is not existing knowledge on effective practice, LaMP strives to fill in these gaps. These activities are based on a combination of existing research, new evidence gathering, and inputs from our community of practice.

Technical support includes:

Assessing partners’ labor mobility needs and gaps, as well as effective practice solutions to address them

Providing technical inputs into partnerships, from design features to implementation 

Design and delivery of action learning programs targeted at specific gaps which must be addressed for successful implementation

Design of campaigns around proposed partnerships in effort to secure needed support from the public and decision makers

Working with partners to design a set of pragmatic and operational minimum standards and assisting them with meeting these standards to ensure partnerships designed through LaMP are rights-respecting
