Regional Informal Workshop: Hanoi, September 17-18, 2010

The 2010 regional informal workshop entitled “Labor Migration in ASEAN and Beyond” on 17‐18 September 2010 held at the Sofitel Hanoi in Ha Noi, Vietnam, was organized by Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) Philippine Office and Migrant Forum in Asia (MFA), with support from the Committee on Social Affairs of the National Assembly of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. The program was designed to encourage learning and reflection on the roles of parliamentarians vis-a-vis the changing migration environment in ASEAN, and how they can be engaged in ensuring protection for migrant workers in the region. The workshop sought to build on the initiatives from previous years, especially on the resolution to create an ASEAN Inter-Parliamentary Caucus on Labor Migration during the 2009 workshop. It also explored the role and potentials of bilateral labor agreements in furthering the migration regime in ASEAN.
