To enhance our collective knowledge on recruitment modalities operating internationally, the Open Working Group on Labour Migration & Recruitment is collaborating on a global study on migrant labour recruitment.

Volunteer researchers are administering an extensive questionnaire, targeting migrant workers in countries of destination and returnee migrants in countries of origin. The questionnaire includes situational analysis related to overseas recruitment and labour migration; policy-and-practice analysis on weaknesses, gaps, and failures resulting in recruitment problems; and recommendations to address these issues.

Data collection is currently underway in 12 countries, and the results will be used for comparative analysis (regional level) and for country-level reports.

If you are interested in participating in data collection efforts, please contact Migrant Forum in Asia ( to learn more.

Results will be published in a series of reports throughout 2015.
