Event Details

The Indonesian Government is in the process of revising Law No. 39 on the Deployment and Placement of Overseas Indonesian Workers. There are plans to approve the revised law soon, despite a lack of meaningful participation of overseas Indonesian workers in the process. In addition, the revisions still fail to recognise the basic rights of migrant workers and their families stipulated under the UN Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families (1990).

​Ms Sri Nurherwati from Komnas Perempuan or the National Commission on Violence Against Women (Indonesia) will discuss the progress of the revisions to Law No. 39 and the international rights of migrants to the Indonesian migrant domestic worker community in Hong Kong.
