Building Partnerships for Effectively Managing Labor Migration: Lessons from Asian Countries

Building Partnerships for Effectively Managing Labor Migration: Lessons from Asian Countries

This book analyzes labor migration trends and policies in Asia and emphasizes the importance of partnerships to promote effective labor migration management. This report analyzes labor migration trends in Asia and emphasizes the importance of partnerships to promote effective labor migration management. It addresses temporary migrant worker programs, focusing on the Republic of Korea’s Employment Permit System and Malaysia’s Electrical and Electronics industry. It also highlights the key role multilateral and bilateral agreements play in protecting migrant workers’ social security entitlements. Key issues covered are how these partnerships can provide safe, orderly, and fair labor migration, and, hence, a fair environment in Asia’s labor market. The four chapters capture the ideas, insights, and discussions from the Eighth Roundtable on Labor Migration in Asia - Building Partnerships for Effectively Managing Labor Migration: Lessons from Asian Countries for the UN Global Compact on Migration, hosted by Human Resource Development Korea in Incheon, Republic of Korea, in January 2018. The event, co-organized by the Asian Development Bank Institute, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, and the International Labour Organization, brought together regional experts and policy makers. Two statistical annexes offer detailed coverage of intra-Asia migration flows, as well as cross-regional migration flows.

Handbook: Addressing violence and harassment against women in the world of work

Handbook: Addressing violence and harassment against women in the world of work

All women and men have the right to live and work free from violence and harassment. However, while this is generally accepted, violence and harassment remains pervasive throughout the world of work. It affects all jobs, sectors and occupations. It has serious consequences for workers, their families and communities, as well as for enterprises’ reputations and productivity. The International Labour Organisation (ILO) and United Nations (UN) Women held a side event at the UNCSW on 19 March to launch this new handbook titled "Addressing violence and harassment against women in the world of work". Violence and harassment against women in the world of work – the topic of this Handbook - hampers women’s empowerment and their access to and progress in the labour market. It also affects the sustainability of the economy in general and perpetuates occupational gender segregation. Violence and harassment against women is often rooted in unequal gender power dynamics, gender stereotypes, patriarchal values and historical inequalities between men and women. Recently, global movements have raised their voices against this phenomenon, calling for real change to achieve safe, healthy and respectful work environments for all women. There is hope – and it is coming from the world of work itself. As the second centenary of the International Labour Organization begins, and the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Platform for Action approaches, the ILO and UN Women are proud to present this Handbook. It provides a glimpse into emerging good practices to address violence and harassment against women in the world of work, by governments, employers, workers and their organizations, and civil society. We hope that, through its systematic compilation of lessons and practical actions, the Handbook will make an important contribution to decent work and gender equality for all.

Managing Migrant Worker Information in Bangladesh

Managing Migrant Worker Information in Bangladesh

As Bangladesh is fast developing into a middle income country, the contribution of overseas employment and remittances to the country’s economy has gained prominence in its overall strategy, especially through the development of a more pro-active and migrant worker-oriented approach to management. This has led to changes in the overall legislative and policy framework, and a gradual recognition of the need to develop improved information systems for management, including concrete measures for social protection, for complaints investigation and redress, and for investment in building the skills and qualifications of workers to improve the quality of their overseas employment. In order to move into full implementation of the Overseas Employment and Migrants’ Act 2013 and the Expatriates’ Welfare and Overseas Employment Policy 2016 as part of ongoing improvements in labour migration, it has now become pertinent to develop the institutional capacity of the government to collect, manage, and monitor migration and labour market information As such, through the Swiss Agency for Development Cooperation (SDC) funded “Application of Migration Policy for Decent Work of Migrant Workers” project, the International Labour Organization in close collaboration with the Refugee and Migratory Movements Research Unit (RMMRU), has developed a set of four reports on the Integrated Migrant Workers Information System and the Labour Market Information System in Bangladesh. This particular report Survey on data integration of the Migrant Workers Information System and Labour Market Information System in Bangladesh presents the findings of two qualitative surveys that are expected to inform and guide policy-makers to develop and design an integrated database information system on migrant workers’ information (MWMIS) and a labour market information system (LMIS). The two surveys reached potential male and female migrants; returnee male and female migrants; local workers by skill set; key data holders such as District Employment and Manpower Offices (DEMOs), Departments of Youth Development (DYDs), Technical Training Centres (TTCs), labour attachés, and migrant community organizations; data users, such other government ministries agencies and directorates, private sector officials, civil society organizations (CSOs), and academia; intermediaries; recruitment agencies; and employers.
