Protecting Asian Migrants’ Rights: Recommendations to Governments of the Colombo Process

Migrant Forum in Asia, Human Rights Watch, and CARAM Asia welcome the reinvigoration of the Colombo Process, a series of regional consultative meetings on Asian labor migration. The fourth ministerial consultation, taking place in Dhaka, Bangladesh, from April 19 to 21, 2011, provides an important opportunity to improve the benefits of labor migration and to protect against potential abuses through enhanced international cooperation and exchange of information.

In this briefing, we present four key recommendations to governments on: 1) protection of migrant domestic workers; 2) increased multilateral cooperation; 3) oversight of recruitment fees; and 4) civil society participation in the Colombo Process meetings. Read the recommendations in full here:
