RIGHT TO WORK

RIGHT-TO-WORK is the fourth migration-centered project. 
It aims to improve labour rights and safe and secure working environment for unskilled Cambodian migrant workers to Thailand. In particular, the project is focused on increasing culture of labor right protection for the most vulnerable migrants, such as young and women, irregular, unskilled, at risk of working abuses, forced labor and new form of slavery.
At the same time, the activities contribute in improving the efficiency of existing system of working migration to make the regular channel more convenient for migrants in terms of respecting their human and labour rights.

LABOUR RIGHTS CORNERS AND COMMUNITY-BASED PROTECTION

Labour Rights Coners are permanent community spaces for migrants, potential migrants, their families, local population, people, providing information and awareness on labour rights and support the reporting of victims of abuse and exploitation. Information about migrants’ needs and cases of abuses will be collected and systematized for the creation of a Community Monitoring System for Prevention and Protection.

CAPACITY BUILDING

Build and improve the capacity of the Labour Rights Coners participants and other actor contributing to the project (Community Mobilisers, Social Ambassadors, CSOs/CBOs and Local Institutions) to increase knowledge on labour rights and Labour Migration policies between Cambodia and Thailand.

AWARENESS CAMPAIGN AND INTERACTIVE INFORMATION

Communication and awareness will be improved through the  instant voice response mechanism, a technology that allows a computer to quickly interact with people, allowing access to tailored information about labor laws and migration and assistance on labour right abuses.

ADVOCACY AND LOBBYING

Advocacy and lobbying to support migrants’ labor rights aims to influence decisions within political, economic, and social systems and institutions, as well legislators. Initiatives based on evidence from the field, will be organized with the engagement of civil society organizations, Labour Right defenders and community actors, at national and provincial levels.
