Migrant Agricultural Workers in Thailand / Mekong Migration Network

Elektronisches Dokument
«Thailand’s agriculture sector has long relied on the labour of migrant workers from neighbouring countries in the Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS). This reliance has increased in recent years as Thailand’s rural population has moved to work in urban areas. Surprisingly, despite growing numbers of migrants travelling to work in Thailand’s agricultural sector, existing research on this group of migrants remains limited. Further understanding of the conditions and needs of this oft-overlooked group is needed, as they risk being insufficiently protected from mistreatment, abuse, and other rights violations taking place within the sector.» [Hrsg.]
