Abstract

The research focused on female labour migration from four countries in South-East Asia : Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and Yunan-China. It covers a sample of 387 female returnees who had migrated internationally for employment. Cases studied involved both legal migration and human smuggling where women were voluntarily smuggled. Once they returned to their places of origin, female migrants faced differing situations. Many returned female workers did not succeed in reintegrating themselves into the old social cultural and economic contexts of their former lives. - (GL)
