Implementation of recommendations from the 3rd to 10th ASEAN Forum on Migrant Labour (AFML)

Progress review background paper for the 11th ASEAN Forum on Migrant Labour (AFML)

The AFML is an open platform for the review, discussion, and exchange of ideas and best practices among governments, workers’, and employers’ organizations, and civil society actors on key issues facing migrant workers in ASEAN. Participants of the AFML develop recommendations to advance the implementation of the ASEAN Declaration on the Protection and Promotion of the Rights of Migrant Workers.

This document is the fourth in a series of background papers, biennially prepared by the ILO TRIANGLE in ASEAN programme, that track the progress of ASEAN stakeholders in implementing recommendations adopted at previous AFMLs. This paper was presented at the 11th AFML held from 29 - 30 October 2018 in Singapore. The first, second, and third background papers were presented respectively at the 5th, 7th, and 9th AFMLs.
