There is a convergence of interests now among policy-makers within the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) towards strengthening labour migration regimes by developing various institutional structures, processes and modalities of cooperation. The ILO Multilateral Framework on Labour Migration has identified a number of guidelines on how best to promote international cooperation on labour migration. This paper provides examples of cooperation under these guidelines and convey an understanding of the ‘state of the art’ in policies and programmes initiated with the cooperation of various actors in the ASEAN region, including governments at both national and local levels, civil society, the private sector, international organizations and multilateral and regional institutions. More specifically, it aims to explore how links amongst these various actors are created, strengthened and maintained, including the administrative structures put in place to support these cooperative mechanisms.
