This note summarizes the deliberations of the workshop on the issue of bilateral labour
agreements (BLAs), which was jointly organized by the World Bank’s KNOMAD Thematic
Working Group (TWG) 3 on Low-skilled Labour Migration and the International Labour
Organization’s (ILO) Labour Migration Branch, and held in Kathmandu, Nepal from 1 to 2
December 2014. It drew upon the findings of related research led by the ILO as a co-chair of KNOMAD’s TWG 3.
The workshop brought together delegates from across the globe from government, social
partner organizations, academia and civil society organizations (see Annex I and II for the conference agenda and the participants’ list).
Its aim was to discuss ways of improving the design, content and implementation of bilateral agreements on labour migration, thereby enhancing the governance of migration flows and the protection of migrant workers in both countries of origin and destination. More specifically, the workshop:
(i) Reviewed the policy recommendations on reforms and mechanisms to make BLAs more effective.

(ii) Discussed the good practice criteria employed by the research team to evaluate
BLAs’ effectiveness.
(iii) Discussed the research findings regarding BLAs, including emerging implementation
modalities, innovative features and their relevance to achieving the BLAs’ objectives.
