No Easy Exit: Migration Bans Affecting Women From Nepal
PDF File Size: 463 KB | Download   
Since large numbers of Nepali women began migrating for domestic work, reports have emerged of hardships experienced abroad, ranging from labour exploitation to physical and sexual abuse. Although some women report positive migration experiences, as the number of women migrants grow, so do the reports of exploitation. Many of these negative experiences concern migrant domestic workers in the Arab States. Prompted by significant public concern, the Government of Nepal has adopted various labour migration policies specifically targeting women and the domestic work sector. Prior to 2010 for example, all women’s migration to the Gulf for low skilled work was restricted. After a period of open regular migration channels, in August 2012, the Government of Nepal announced a new ban on women under the age of 30 years from migrating to the Arab States for domestic work. This decision is commonly referred to as ‘the age ban’. The age ban was introduced by Nepal’s cabinet without official public consultation or publication. An incomplete description of the decision was announced in a press release.
