A panel discussion organized by the FES Abidjan office brought together representatives of the Ivorian state, international organizations, local associations and unions on the topic of labor migration in Côte d’Ivoire. Based on the presentation of a study on the Ivorian historical context, the discussions allowed us to compare the perspectives from the country’s migratory profile and the historical role of migrants in the national construction of the socio-economic context. The role of trade unions and social dialogue has been emphasized to further regulate migration movements to and from Côte d’Ivoire, thereby reducing the risk of misinformation and manipulation that might be a source of tension.
