Promoting integration for migrant domestic workers in Belgium
Domestic workers provide an invaluable contribution to societies, yet still too often their
work is not valued as such, and they remain a largely hidden and often vulnerable
workforce. The Convention of the International Labour Organization (ILO) on Decent
Work for Domestic Workers, 2011 (No. 189), can be perceived as recognition of the value
of domestic work and as a call for action addressing the exclusion of domestic workers
from protective regulatory frameworks.
