This report provides an analysis of safe migration knowledge, attitudes and practices among potential migrants in Myanmar and identifies key areas of work to increase the protection of their rights. Migrant workers make a critical contribution to Myanmar’s economic and social development, however, decades of isolation from the international community and gaps in the policy framework governing labour migration have meant that their situation at places of origin is still inadequately understood. To obtain further information about safe migration knowledge, attitudes and practices, the ILO’s GMS TRIANGLE project partnered with the Myanmar Development Resource Institute’s Centre for Economic and Social Development to conduct a survey of 625 potential migrant workers at three target sites within Myanmar. The pioneering study will be used to shape the design and evaluate the impact of policy measures, capacity building trainings and support services to protect the rights of migrant workers throughout the migration process.
