In preparation for the Regional Conference “Enhancing Collective Advocacy, Action and Empowerment of Domestic Workers in Asia”, Migrant Forum in Asia and the International Domestic Workers Federation conducted a survey among actors advocating for the rights of domestic workers. The survey aimed to map out initiatives of various stakeholders engaged in working on domestic workers’ rights; and aimed to identify grey areas & gaps around advocacy and to encourage civil society to cooperate strategically on these areas.
The survey questionnaire was divided into eight parts:
a) Organizational information
b) Scope of organizations’ engagement on domestic worker issues
c) Mapping of activities in application to domestic workers issues
d) Effective knowledge sharing
e) Thoughts on effective partnerships
f) Participation in policy processes
g) Actors’ opinions on ways forward and
h) Publications and campaign/advocacy materials.
The survey respondents were domestic workers advocates and current actors who are engaged in the advocacy and the initiatives being undertaken in the Asian region. A total of 49 organizations from Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong SAR, Taiwan POC, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, and Qatar responded to the survey.
