Migrant domestic workers : from Burma to Thailand


Undocumented migration flows involve millions throughout Asia with an increasing number of women and girls moving into unregulated works without rights. The study focuses on two sites in Thailand, Chiang Mai and Mae Sot, and highlights the extreme conditions and often-abusive environment in which domestic workers from Burma have been employed. They are unable to defend their most basic rights as citizens in Burma, as migrant and as domestic workers. Collective work divided in ten chapters : 1- Historical overview, 2- Research methodology, 3- Life in Burma, 4- The migration journey, 5- Working conditions, 6- Legal status, 7- Health issues, 8- Addiction and domestic violence, 9- Future aspirations, 10- Recommendations. - (GL)
