Lawyers Beyond Borders

Lawyers Beyond Borders is an international network of legal experts interested in advocating for the rights of migrant workers, brought together by Migrant Forum in Asia.

Lawyers Beyond Borders was formed out of 4 years of thinking and strategizing by MFA and its various partners who wanted to bring together lawyers who work on the cases of migrant workers, primarily in the Middle East and GCC country context, to move towards impact litigation and policy advocacy in their work. Meeting in Bangkok for the first time in November 2011, a core group of lawyers has coalesced around the following goals:

  • To identify avenues for legal redress in countries of origin and destination;
  • To cooperate and overcome legal challenges; and
  • To secure favourable legal outcomes through impact litigation and policy reforms

Lawyers Beyond Borders also forges important connections among lawyers and grassroots organizations working with migrant workers on the ground through MFA’s members and partners, as well as migrant communities in both countries of origin and destination.

About Us

MFA is a regional network of non-government organizations (NGOs), associations and trade unions of migrant workers, and individual advocates in Asia who are committed to protect and promote the rights and welfare of migrant workers.

It is guided by a vision of an alternative world system based on respect for human rights and dignity, social justice, and gender equity, particularly for migrant workers.
