Reducing vulnerabilities of migrant workers pre-departure
Despite significant efforts to strengthen transparency and accountability throughout the migration journey, a range of structural forces continue to drive exploitation of workers. The adoption of ethical practices such as ensuring sufficient pre-departure information, valid and legal documentation, unaltered contracts, and an effective grievance channel to report incidents of exploitation, is expensive and challenging to implement. Fundamentally, the current legacy system which industry stakeholders rely on does not offer cost-effective mechanisms or incentives to enable the rapid adoption of good practices, especially given the lack of operational capacity and resources, pre-departure.
