Analysis of country potential for Pakistan –
|Type of project||Migration, Education and Labour Market|
|Client||Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, Eschborn, Germany|
|Origin of funding||BMZ|
The German Fachkräfteeinwanderungsgesetz (FEG), which came into force in March 2020, forms a decisive basis for regular skilled labour migration to Germany. German companies are dependent on the immigration of skilled workers to ensure productivity and competitiveness.
To develop and pilot new partnership-based approaches based on previous experiences of labour migration to Germany and to share learning experiences between different countries and actors, the new global project "Partnership approaches to development-oriented training and labour market migration" (PAM) was commissioned by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
Individual countries have national migration policies or strategy documents, but these are poorly implemented. In many cases, the main target countries pay attention to their own labour market needs, but not to those of the countries of origin, which can lead, for example, to a brain drain and thus to development constraints. There is a lack of partnership approaches between countries of origin and host countries, which provide the framework for safe, regular, and ordered training and labour migration, and which are used in a development-oriented manner (core problem).
The module objective of the global project is, therefore: Partnership approaches for safe, regular, and ordered training and labour migration between Germany and selected cooperation countries will be applied with a focus on development.
Against this background, PEM CONSULT is assigned to conduct a preliminary assessment of the potential priority country Pakistan for the project and at the same time to provide methodological advice for further assessment processes.
