South Asia Labour Migration Governance Project
PDF File Size: 172 KB | Download   
Migration in south Asia is largely South-South and is characterized by low and semi-skilled workers migrating with fixed-term contracts. The primary destination for South Asian migrant workers is the Arab Gulf States, which rely on foreign labour to fill more than 90 per cent of private sector jobs. The latest figures show an annual demand from the Gulf region for more than two million workers from the major countries of origin in South Asia.While labour migration generates substantial benefits for countries of origin and destination it also creates a range of problems. Abuse of migrant workers during recruitment and employment is a common, well- documented issue. Women face barriers in finding overseas employment, and female migrant domestic workers are among the most vulnerable to abuses.The South Asia Labour Migration Governance Project aims to promote the management of labour migration from India, Nepal and Pakistan to the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), ensure effective protection of the rights of vulnerable migrant workers, enhance the development impact of labour migration and reduce unregulated migration.
