Background and introduction

SAFE & FAIR: Realizing women migrant workers’ rights and opportunities in the ASEAN region (2018-2022) is part of the multi-year EU-UN Spotlight Initiative to Eliminate Violence Against Women and Girls. SAFE & FAIR is implemented by the ILO and UN Women, led by the ILO
Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific.

SAFE & FAIR delivers technical assistance and support with the overall objective of making labour migration safe and fair for all women in the ASEAN region. SAFE & FAIR engages with ASEAN Member States’ government authorities; ASEAN institutions; workers’ organizations;
employers and recruitment agencies; civil society organizations; community-based organizations; families and communities; research institutions and academia, media networks, youth, and the general public and supports programming in ten countries (Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao People's Democratic Republic, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Viet Nam).

The SAFE & FAIR project strategy mainstreams three cross-cutting topics: women’s voice and agency; rights-based approach; and broad engagement of stakeholders. The SAFE & FAIR Communications and Visibility Strategy ensures visibility, awareness raising and dialogue
promotion on changing norms around violence against women throughout migration and strengthening rights-based approaches to safe and fair labour migration governance for women in the ASEAN region.

The National Project Advisory Committee (PAC) for Indonesia will provide technical and strategic guidance and governance to SAFE & FAIR at the country level and ensure that the project remains aligned with country priorities and national frameworks.
