Eliminating violence against women and girls is central to achieving gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.
Safe & Fair: Realising women migrant workers’ rights and opportunities in the ASEAN region Programme, is part of the EU-UN Spotlight Initiative to eliminate violence against women and girls, a global, multi-year initiative between the European Union and United Nations.
Safe & Fair is implemented through a partnership between the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and UN Women with the overriding objective of ensuring that labour migration is safe and fair for all women in the ASEAN region.
This Facebook live discussion on the Safe & Fair programme, organised in the framework of the European Development days in Brussels, is an opportunity to discuss the realities and challenges facing women migrant workers in the ASEAN region, in particular vulnerabilities to violence, trafficking and exploitation; the role of gender-responsive labour migration governance; and barriers to accessing quality essential services, highlighting some of the key ways the Safe & Fair programme proposes to address these issues.
