Capacitate Stakeholder Skills on Labour Migration Research for Evidence-Based Policy Making

The proposed training aims to capacitate Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment (SLBFE) officers to confidently conduct and institutionalise independent research on migration-related issues within the SLBFE. By the end of the training, the participants will have the capacity to:

  1. Identify knowledge gaps relevant to the needs of policymakers and implementers.
  2. Handle research administration, including conceptualising research proposals, developing terms of reference, engaging external services when necessary, conducting independent research, and monitoring and reviewing project deliverables.
  3. Independently conduct medium-scale research, either individually or as part of a group.
  4. Effectively communicate research findings through position papers, policy briefs, presentations, and other knowledge-sharing methods.
