Decent work for domestic workers: eight good practices from Asia

The eight good practices demonstrate successful initiatives to combat child labour in India and Nepal; to establish strong and sustainable domestic workers organizations in the form of trade unions, cooperatives or associations in Indonesia, the Philippines and the Republic of Korea; on skills development and organizing in Hong Kong, China, and on the global online IDWF communication network.

The eight chapters presented in this publication took diverse approaches to addressing the goals, but they all aimed at empowering DWs by organizing DWs and providing them with better services, education and training, and engaged in policy advocacy for better labour and social protection. They also shared the belief that DWs themselves, including child domestic workers (CDWs), should participate to the extent possible in the organizing, training and subsequent leadership activities.
