Understanding Multiple Discrimination against Labour Migrants in Asia

Sohoon Lee and Nicola Piper; FES Berlin, June 2013; FES Shanghai, August 2013

The paper refers to the multiplicity of discriminatory mechanisms that face female labour migrants in Asia. It elaborates on the structural inequalities that lie at the intersection of class and gender, and discusses the fact that governments have not adequately addressed the vulnerability of migrant women. The paper strongly argues for more governmental interventions at both local and national level in order to address intersectional oppression.
