 Regional Workshop on Ethical Business and Recruitment Practices in Labour Migration (UAE, 27-29 April, 2016)

This was DTP’s second program focusing on the private sector, and the first to more actively seek to engage with the private sector.  Professor Paul Redmond AM and Associate Professor Justine Nolan from the DTP Board (& UNSW) laid the foundations for what was a fascinating and fruitful workshop – and the start of our engagement with the private sector on these issues.   There were representatives from all of the key stakeholders involved – government, business, trade unions and NGOs – local and international.  The scales of the challenges are daunting, but exploring ways to build collaboration for implementation of key standards is essential if changes are to be made to ensure migrant workers are treated with dignity and respect.
