arrow for change – the health rights of migrant women

rsz_afc47

Current globalisation strategies, restructuring of economies through structural adjustment programmes and removal of protective regulations for cheap, temporary contractual workers favour migrant labour. Poverty, conflicts, environmental catastrophes, forced displacement and changes in production processes have increased migration.

The demand for cheap, flexible, contractual and deregulated labour has also encouraged highly organised recruitment. The demand for skilled and unskilled workers in all sectors is growing regionally and globally.
