Improving and Regulating Recruitment Practices in Asia and the Pacific

Posted by Bandara Ekanayake at February 22. 2011

Dear Nilim

Recruitment agents in sending countries are able to do various manipulations in the process of recruitment for foreign employment only until the support is received from receiving end as well. For example, under the EPS in South Korea, no sending parties could do anything harmful for the migrant worker since all such attempts are banned by the system. Further, besides the presence of various regulations, aren't there money-minded people who do various unlawful and inhuman activities in the world? If it is the situation, what should the governments and interested INGOs do? My proposal to ILO is; to introduce some sort of mechanism (i.e. automated systems) through which the sending countries can hire foreigners and sending countries can post the profiles of prospective migrant workers, and to motivate all governments of labour receiving countries to hire foreign workers only through such systems. - Bandara Ekanayake
