Assessing the Human Rights Situation of Migrant Workers in ASEAN: A Civil Society Baseline Study

September 8, 2021Report

This project report is composed by the Human Rights Working Group (HRWG), Indonesia’s NGO Coalition for International Human Rights Advocacy. The main deliverable of this project constitutes a baseline study that aims to identify the current human rights situation of migrant workers in ASEAN countries, in particular, in the wake of the ASEAN Consensus on the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Migrant Workers (ASEAN Consensus). This in-depth baseline study provides new insights into the key issues affecting migrant workers in the region. Such insights are indispensable to civil society advocacy as they allow stakeholders to have a well-rounded understanding of labor migration, legal frameworks, main actors, and pressing issues pertaining to the migration of workers in each of ASEAN Member States (AMS). It is to note that this baseline study, which serves as a continuation of the civil society advocacy project on ASEAN Consensus, has been made possible with the ample support provided by The Sasakawa Peace Foundation (SPF).
