Migrant Welfare Funds: Lessons for Myanmar from Nepal, Thailand and the Philippines

This paper prepared by ILO Myanmar’s Development of Internal and International Labour Migration (DIILM Project) (February 2016 – June 2021) funded by Livelihoods and Food Security Fund (LIFT) provides details of the development, administration and implementation of migrant welfare funds in three Asian countries, namely Nepal, the Phiippines and Thailand.

The paper can be a resource for those working with migrant workers in Myanmar to consider future supplementary forms of social protection for migrant workers overseas.
