Women Migrant Workers in the ASEAN Economic Community

An excellent reference and policy tool founded on sound review and research, this report charts actionable policy recommendations for fair and equitable migration for women toward enhanced regional cooperation and development.

The overall aim of this study is to shed new light on intra-ASEAN migrant women’s labour mobility trends, access to and outcomes in labour markets, the contribution to ASEAN economies and high-growth sectors, and the challenges of social and economic inclusion.

The report also reviews the current migrant governance frameworks at national and regional level, providing actionable evidence-based policy recommendations to benefit from women’s labour mobility, provide fair and equitable migration opportunities for women, and enhance regional social and economic development.
