  1. Analytical report on the international labour migration statistics database in ASEAN: Improving data collection for evidence-based policy-making

    01 December 2015

    The report provides a broad-based quantitative analysis of the current and emerging trends in international labour migration into, from, and among the ten Member States of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). The report analyses some of the most common drivers underpinning these trends and argues that labour migration is likely to increase within the region over the short and medium term. The report’s key findings are drawn from the national level data collected through the International Labour Organization’s (ILO) International Labour Migration Statistics (ILMS) Database in ASEAN. Its recommendations draw upon these findings as well as the available meta-data, to identify solutions and key directions for building a stronger evidence base to help improve policies on international labour migration in ASEAN.

  6. Tripartite Seminar for Enhancing Social Protection in an Economically Integrated ASEAN

    With such development ahead of the ASEAN integration, social protection will play a crucial role by compensating for the short-term loss of income and facilitating access to education and skills, with positive impacts on the overall productivity of the workforce and economic growth in the longer term. While social protection is recognized as a key element for buffering social impact of economic changes, implications for maintaining and extending adequate social security to all, especially with new challenges posed by the regional integration, is a major concern raised by the ASEAN countries.
