Campaign Glossary

This participatory glossary is being compiled by the Open Working Group on Labour Migration & Recruitment. It provides definitions and usage notes for a number of terms used in the global campaign for Recruitment Reform. It provides clarity on the nuances in terminology used to describe migrant labour recruitment processes and regulation across national contexts. It serves as a starting point for the development of political positions and advocacy efforts to address the serious human and labour rights violations that occur daily in migrant labour recruitment.

This glossary is a living document. Terms are continually being added and existing definitions refined, with updates posted on this webpage. We invite you to suggest additions and revisions by emailing us: mfa@mfasia.org.

Download the most updated version of the glossary here (updated June 2016).
