Enhancing Collective Advocacy, Action and Empowerment of Domestic Workers in Asia, 22-24 October 2017, Manila

Domestic worker leaders and representatives, domestic workers’ unions and federations, migrant groups and advocates, trade unions, civil society groups, lawyers, academics and members of parliament from ASEAN member countries – Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand— and other Asian countries Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Kuwait, Qatar, Jordan, Lebanon, UAE, etc. came together on 22-24 October 2017 in Manila for a regional gathering, to follow-up on decisions and plans agreed at our first Asian regional domestic workers’ conference in 2011 (marking the adoption of ILO Convention 189 on Decent Work for Domestic Workers), and to take stock of the developments six years after the adoption of that landmark treaty.

The conference aimed among others to identify key and emerging issues and regional priorities and action plans in terms of empowering and advancing the decent work agenda for domestic workers and to further establish strategic alliances among national, regional and global networks including relevant actors such as parliamentarians.

The conference was organized by Migrant Forum Asia (MFA) and the International Domestic Workers Federation (IDWF) with the support of the Open Society Foundation (OSF).
