In 2005, the ILO Multilateral Framework on Labour Migration was adopted by the ILO constituents. These non-binding principles and guidelines are a response to widespread demands for practical guidance and action with a view to maximizing the benefits of labour migration for all parties. To build bridges between ILO’s standard-setting role and services and programs for its stakeholders, the ILO implements projects with funding from donors worldwide and partnerships with local stakeholders. One of the projects of the ILO and funded by the European Union is called Decent Work Across Borders (DWAB) project: A Pilot project for Migrant Health Professionals and Skilled Workers. It seeks to better understand schemes in line with circular migration of health professionals. Through this project, the ILO seeks to facilitate an approach to migration that benefits the migrant workers, the source and destination countries within a rights-based framework for labour migration managementhttp://www.ilo.org/manila/whatwedo/projects/WCMS_173607/lang–en/index.htm
