    Project Details

    Project Description

    Complex patterns of labour migration exist in the South East Asian region, influenced by distinct economic disparities between its countries, and characterised by instances of human rights abuse. This project will address the lack of a clear international normative framework for labour migration in the region by proposing strategies for regional governance and regulation, and steering regional dialogue to a human rights and development focus. Outcomes of the project will improve mechanisms to protect human rights of migrant workers, and will lead to greater regional stability and the enhancement of Australia's reputation and influence in the South East Asian region.
