Labor Intermediation Services: Considerations and Lessons for Latin America and the Caribbean from International Experience

By Jacqueline Mazza


Latin America and the Caribbean have experience, albeit limited, in the reform and reformulation of labor intermediation systems. This article seeks to bring together both experience in the region and within the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries to investigate how such systems might be relevant to Latin American and Caribbean economies. The article first reviews what is the more modern concept of labor intermediation, outlining its various services. It then analyzes OECD and Latin American experience with reform and modernization of intermediation systems with an eye to recommendations and adaptations particularly relevant to economies in the region.
