This booklet brings together Devpolicy Blog posts on Pacific labour mobility from 2017 to 2018.

Labour mobility is key to the future of many Pacific island countries, and an important research focus area for Devpolicy. In putting together this publication, we hope to provide readers with a sample of commentary on Pacific labour mobility, with the aim of illuminating opportunities for growth and improved human development outcomes in the region, and the role that Australia can play to support these. The volume is organised under four main areas: Seasonal Worker Programme participant perspectives, sending-country issues, receiving-country issues, and the Asia Pacific Technical College and Pacific Labour Scheme.

Publication of this booklet is made possible by support from the Australian aid program through the Pacific Research Program. As is always the case with the Devpolicy Blog, views expressed in this publication are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect those of the Development Policy Centre or its staff, nor those of any government.
