Transient Workers Count Too and the Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics (HOME) submitted a joint shadow report on Indonesia to the United Nations’ Office of the High Commissioner of Human Rights (OHCHR) in early August 2017.
As a signatory to the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families (“CMW”), Indonesia is subject to regular review regarding its adherence to CMW. The next review will take place at the 27th session of the Committee on Migrant Workers, 4 – 13 September 2017.
As part of the review process, civil society organisations are welcome to provide input to the Committee on Migrant Workers via the OHCHR. Our shadow report is intended to do that.
Singapore receives a large number of migrant workers from Indonesia, the great majority of them being female and working in the domestic sector.
Two versions of the report can be downloaded from here. The English-language version is the one that was submitted to OHCHR. The Bahasa Indonesia version is an unofficial translation.
