Thursday 10th March 2022 at 14.00 – 16.00 (GMT+7) via Zoom
It has been two years since WHO declared COVID-19 pandemic on 11 March 2020. The pandemic has made the vulnerabilities of migrant workers exacerbated, and the impact of the public health crisis on their rights has been particularly pressing for the rights to health and labour rights. To mark the two year anniversary of the pandemic, BEBESEA will present two recently completed reports on health protection and recruitment and placement fees of migrant workers in East and Southeast Asia.
Inviting authors of the reports and experts from the civil society and academia, we will hold policy dialogue to disseminate the findings and exchange ideas in these cross-cutting issues for migrant workers’ rights with the aim to build knowledge, strengthen the network, solidarity, and advocacy on issues around social protection and fair placement fees.
