LaMP is the only organization dedicated solely to expanding rights-respecting labor mobility for low-skilled workers as a global public good. We seek to expand access to job opportunities abroad for these workers (scale), and to improve the migrant worker experience (quality). To this end, we work to address market failures and regulatory barriers that impede safe and effective labor mobility. We propose innovative and market-compatible solutions that create sustainable labor mobility systems worldwide.

LaMP is also distinctive in its “practice first” approach to creating globally scalable models. Rather than focus on designing perfect policies and assuming they will translate into practice, LaMP emphasizes solving problems on the ground to demonstrate good practices that pave the way for better policy. In designing new models to work in practice from the outset, we take a multi-stakeholder approach,  developing solutions that address the interests of all actors. This approach results in locally relevant models that can be adapted and scaled globally.
