The Global Forum for Responsible Recruitment is a thought leadership platform for accelerating the fair, ethical, and responsible recruitment of migrant workers. We convene a global ecosystem and marketplace – global brands, suppliers, recruitment agencies, governments, employers and employer’s organisations, workers and workers’ organisations, intergovernmental and civil society organisations – to take stock, nurture ideas, foster engagement, and inspire action.

International Organization for Migration (IOM) is the leading inter-governmental organization in the field of migration and works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental partners.
In 2014, the IOM created IRIS – its flagship initiative to promote ethical recruitment of migrant workers. The goal of IRIS is to make international recruitment fair for everyone involved: migrant workers, employers, recruiters and countries of origin and destination. It does this by: Promoting respect for the rights of migrant workers; Enhancing
transparency and accountability in recruitment; Advancing the Employer Pays Principle; Strengthening public policies, regulations and enforcement mechanisms.
The IRIS engagement with government is guided by the Montréal Recommendations on Recruitment: A Road Map towards Better Regulation, a set of global guidance articulating good practice in recruitment regulation, enforcement and protection of migrant workers. The Montréal Recommendations, developed by regulators for regulators, reflect growing consensus among policy makers that governance gaps in international recruitment require deliberate, robust and coordinated action.
