Policy Paper for Reforming the "Sponsorship System" for Migrant Domestic Workers: Towards an Alternative Governance Scheme

Publication Type

The policy paper attempts to provide policy makers, human rights advocates and other relevant stakeholders with a framework for the implementation of a rights-based approach to the recruitment and employment of foreign domestic workers, as well as examples and lessons learned from other countries to guide in the development of this alternative policy. We hope it will offer all relevant stakeholders a new discussion platform to debate and develop alternative immigration and employment mechanisms for migrant domestic workers that protect their rights and effectively prevent trafficking and exploitative situations from occurring.
