SURE National and Comparative Reports

Within the context of the SURE project (Supporting the social and professional reintegration of North African return migrants), ITCILO in collaboration with FIERI (Forum Internazionale ed Europeo di Ricerche sull’Immigrazione) has published three new research reports dealing with the issue of return migration and existing socio-professional reintegration mechanisms in Morocco and Tunisia. The aim of the national reports is to map the populations of return migrants in the two countries, on the basis of available data, and to draw up an inventory of existing mechanisms, programs and services in the field of socio-professional reintegration. The purpose of the comparative report is to compare the strategies of the two countries with regard to return and reintegration policies for migrant citizens in order to analyze their strengths, weaknesses and gaps, as well as their evaluation. In conclusion, a number of ad hoc recommendations have been made to support the strengthening of existing initiatives and the development of stronger reintegration programs, allowing return migrants to contribute as fully as possible to the sustainable development of their return communities. .

SURE Training Needs Assessment Report

Within the framework of the ITCILO SURE and ILO AMEM projects, the ITCILO in coordination with the ILO offices in Geneva, Algiers, Tunis and Rabat developed and disseminated a training needs assessment questionnaire from September to November 2018, targeting a total of 100 respondents in Morocco, Tunisia and Mauritania. The objective of the training needs analysis was to guide the development of a capacity-building plan on labour migration governance and reintegration of returnees for representatives of key ILO constituents in the Maghreb region. This program will include training activities and self-guided pedagogical materials. A training needs assessment ensures a participatory design of training activities, i.e. that the training activities developed by the project respond to actual needs articulated by direct beneficiaries. The administration of the training needs assessment questionnaire followed consultations with institutional partners of the SURE project in the directly targeted countries (i.e. Morocco and Tunisia). The training needs assessment, which focused on individual (i.e. micro level) needs, ana-lysed respondents’ professional profile, their priorities related to technical content, their methodological preferences, and finally their preferred modality for the validation of newly-acquired skilled and competencies.
The present report aims to analyse the findings of the training needs assessment questionnaire. It will inform the development of training activities within the framework of the ITCILO SURE and ILO AMEM projects, bearing in mind synergies that may exist between the projects and ensuring coordination in the design and delivery of training activities. In light of this objective, the questionnaire encompasses questions pertaining to a vast array of technical topics relevant to the ILO’s labour migration activities in North Africa, as well as a dedicated section on reintegration. Whenever relevant and possible, the training needs analysis attempts a disaggregation by target country, to reflect national differences and allow for the design of tailor-made solutions.
