The team of the Youth Employability and Retention Programme (YERP) continued its activities with the organisation of a training related to migration for employees of the Centers for Information, Counselling, and Training (CISO). The overall objective of the training was to increase the knowledge and skills that CISO employees will need to counsel potential youth migrants on the opportunities and procedures related to regular migration, as well as on the potential dangers of irregular labour migration. Specifically, the training focused on migration issues of regional relevance, basic understanding of international migration law and migration legislation in Bosnia and Herzegovina, information that will help potential migrants make decisions about seeking work abroad, prevention of trafficking in human beings, awareness raising on migrants’ contribution to development in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and support for young people who wish to return to Bosnia and Herzegovina for work. The training was held in Konjic from 24 to 29 January 2011, and thirty-three CISO employees successfully completed it.
