  3. It’s time to come to understand and appreciate migrant workers

    Despite their crucial contributions to the economies and societies of both origin countries and Thailand, migrant workers, especially women, frequently experience gender-based inequalities, exploitation, and sometimes violence during the migration process, which compound the prejudice and discrimination they experience as migrant workers. The negative attitudes towards migrant workers can be eliminated by social inclusion, interaction with migrant workers, and engagement with migrant communities.

  1. COVID-19 and women migrant workers in ASEAN

    This brief explores the multi-dimensional impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on women migrant workers in and from the ASEAN region. While women migrant workers in the ASEAN region strive to protect their livelihoods and their health, COVID-19 has presented them with a health crisis, compounded by detrimental impacts on freedom from violence and harassment, employment, income, social protection, access to services, and access to justice. This brief outlines the critical programmatic and policy responses needed. The ILO-UN Women Spotlight Initiative Safe and Fair Programme is committed to ensuring women migrant workers’ rights are protected and they receive support when and where they need it.
