AP-MagNet discussion forum on public attitudes to migrant workers

This is an emotive and topical issue in the region and around the world. Often public attitudes do not correspond with the contribution that migrants make to host society and the economy - and can result in discrimination and social exclusion. Among other things, the discussion forum will look at how attitudes are formed, what can be done to influence attitudes, what is the impact of public attitudes on policy and the lives of migrant workers, etc. To log on to the discussion and post comments, visit AP MagNet. The start of this forum coincides with the release of an ILO study on this issue in Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea and Thailand.
