  10. Going back – Moving on: Economic and Social Empowerment of Migrants including victims of trafficking returned from the EU and neighbouring countries

    1 February 2009 - 31 January 2012

    In many European countries, Thai and Filipino women are among the largest group of women migrant workers. They are heavily concentrated in the services sector, as waitresses in restaurants, and in entertainment venues, (including sex-establishments) and as domestic workers. Given their occupational profile and the irregularity of their employment status, it is not surprising that many Filipino and Thai migrant workers, especially women, have experienced some of the worst forms of exploitation in Europe.
