Call for Proposals

Request for Proposals – Ethical Recruitment Roadmap to support the implementation of a theory of change to end migrant worker exploitation in business operations and supply chains

In 2018, IOM, through its Corporate Responsibility in Eliminating Slavery and Trafficking Initiative (CREST), developed a multi-stakeholder Theory of Change (TOC) with input from the private sector, expert organizations, civil society, as well as representatives from international organizations, including IOM experts. It identifies the roles of different actors in bringing about change to current recruitment and employment practices that result in exploitation of migrant workers.

Building on this theoretical framework and the recommendations from the consulted stakeholders, IOM seeks to develop additional analysis and guidance materials with the overall goal to socialise the TOC and develop more concrete pathways for relevant stakeholders. This should include a progress monitoring framework for the private sector, an ethical recruitment roadmap as well as a baseline assessment as a basis for guiding efforts towards achieving the TOC in a longer-term perspective.
