Cambodia's Labor Migration: Analysis of the Legal Framework

— theme: Labour migration policy, Pre-employment and recruitment policies and practices, Rights and protection of migrants
— country: Cambodia

April 2011 - This report analyzes the laws and policies governing the migration of the Cambodian workforce overseas. It focuses on the migration of women to Malaysia (for domestic work) and men to Thailand (to work in agribusiness), analyzing the rules that govern regular migration while identifying legislation that can be employed to protect those who become victims during irregular migration and be used against those who perpetrate and profit from it. The stories of Samneang (a Khmer man migrating to Thailand) and Sopheap (a woman recruited to work in Malaysia) are used to illustrate different processes of labor migration and how the relevant laws can be applied in these contexts.
