Background to the Project


In January 2020, Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) and Human Right Development Foundation (HRDF) started a 36-month Project entitled CSO Development for the Promotion and Advancement for Migrant Rights funded by the European Union that aimed at increasing social and economic equality of marginalised and vulnerable migrant workers in the greater Mae Sot area, Thailand.  The project targets 5,000 migrant workers in greater Mae Sot, Thailand.

Thailand is a main receiving country in ASEAN hosting approximately 2 million registered migrant workers.[1] In this regard, it is assumed that 80% of them are Myanmar migrant. Considering the number of female migrants, women migrant workers make up a significant proportion for approximately 50% of total migrant population.[2] In Tak province, Mae Sot and Phob Pra districts are common destination for Myanmar migrants due to flexibility of border management and the impact of Special Economic Zone that create high demand of labour as well as the growth of agricultural sector. In Mae Sot, there are approximately 375 manufacturing factories locating in the district and it is seen as a pull-factor for migrants to come and seek better economic opportunities. However, migrant workers in the target areas are often encounter with different forms of exploitation and human rights violations, such as limited access to basic social protection and being exploited by employers and officials.[3] Moreover, the agricultural sector in Phop Phra is considered as one of the most dangerous industries for health and safety and it is expected to employ a significant number of child labour.

The major problems facing Burmese migrant workers include: (i) the necessary legislation, policy, and enforcement required to ensure more rights, freedoms and protection from exploitation for migrant workers, are not currently in place. Under Thai laws, migrant workers are not allowed to form labour unions, therefore, they have limited capacity in voicing their concerns. Further, although there has been some law reform to increase protection of migrant workers, enforcement remains at a low level. (ii) Lack of capacity of CSOs to engage in the dialogue process at national level, language barriers, limited resources and travel restrictions, are among major factors that limit the ability of CSOs to engage directly.  (iii) Occupational health and safety is another issue affecting migrants, where injuries could be prevented through more effective regulation of the workplace. Migrant workers often encounter with ‘3 D-jobs’, Dangerous, Dirty, and Difficult, making this group highly susceptible to injury. The major health concerns of migrant workers include skeletal or muscular illnesses due to heavy workloads and poor occupational health and safety standards.

It is envisaged that these identified problems will be tackled through the “CSO Development for the Promotion and Advancement  of Migrant Rights” project. The stated objective will be achieved by three expected results described below:

  • Result 1: Improved awareness of and adherence to labour laws among target employers and migrant workers;
  • Result 2: Enhanced CSO capacity to engage in policy dialogue platforms and networks for migrant rights and advocacy and;
  • Result 3: Strengthened collaboration between CSOs, local authorities, and private sector to bring about improved labour/human rights for migrant workers.
