Category : Documents
UNWomen published a 2013 position paper, “Review of Laws, Policies and Regulations Governing Labour Migration in Asian and Arab States: A Gender and Rights Based Perspective”. This publication is a reference manual of the country-specific legal protections for women migrant workers in origin (Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Jordan, Lao PDR, Nepal, Philippines) and destination countries (Bahrain, Hong Kong SAR, UAE, Singapore and Thailand). This reference manual is unique in that it examines the existing laws from a gender and rights based perspective, looking at legal measures for women migrant workers in all phases of the migration cycle.
