  4. Making women migrant workers count: Sex disaggregation of labour migration statistics in ASEAN (2019 data)

    15 December 2020

    The International Labour Migration Statistics (ILMS) Database in ASEAN has been published annually since December 2014. In validating, annotating and gathering information from relevant surveys and administrative records produced in ASEAN, ILMS Database in ASEAN fills an important knowledge gap for national and regional policy-makers and for the broader research community. In 2019 ILMS was updated to ensure data disaggregations by sex for all data categories. This allows for a concerted focus on data on women migrant workers throughout ASEAN. The collection and use of data on women migrant workers in ASEAN ensures that women are counted and seen. Only with accurate data, can governments form evidence-based, gender-responsive policies and tripartite-plus partners ensure essential service provision is proportionate to women’s numbers in labour migration.

  5. Mobile women and mobile phones: Women migrant workers’ use of information and communication technologies in ASEAN

    15 December 2020

    The joint ILO-UN Women Safe and Fair Programme: Realizing women migrant workers’ rights and opportunities in the ASEAN region (part of the multi-year EU-UN Spotlight Initiative to Eliminate Violence Against Women and Girls) undertook a qualitative study involving potential and returned women migrant workers in four countries of origin in the ASEAN region – Cambodia, Indonesia, Myanmar, and the Philippines. The study covers intra-ASEAN labour migration, including women who intended to migrate to, or had just returned from, Malaysia, Singapore, or Thailand. The study provides insight into women migrant workers’ use of mobile phones, and how women migrant workers could access more accurate information throughout the migration process and increase their connections with peers.
