DTP began its focus on the rights of Migrant Workers in 2004, with its 1st regional capacity building program in Jakarta, Indonesia with Migrant Forum in Asia (MFA). Climate change, resource conflicts, poverty and growing global inequality means more people are on the move than ever before.
Migrants are vulnerable in countries of origin, country of destination and while on the move. Migrant workers are vulnerable to human rights violations, including forced labour, wage theft, and modern-day slavery.
This innovative program has included regional capacity building programs, multi-module country focused programs, programs in countries of origin and destination in Asia and the Middle-East. They have built networks at the national level and along migration corridors.
