Trans-border migration has been rapidly increasing in the midst of globalization. Today, the number of migrant workers in a broad sense in the world reached out 160 million, according to the ILO report. In this year 2019 ILO celebrates its 100th anniversary and puts the issue of migrant workers at one of its core agendas. Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration was adopted by the UN General Assembly in December 2018, in which the states and governments over the world committed to protect the rights of migrant workers by formulating international framework for cooperation. Meanwhile, Japan counts the number of foreign migrant workers over 2 million and a considerable challenge underlies employment of low-skilled workers as well as high-skilled. This seminar discusses challenges for decent work of migrant workers and the efforts of government, employers and workers, and shares future perspective.
