Overview

The Trade in Domestic Workers: Causes, Mechanisms and Consequences of International Migration by Noeleen Heyzer, Geertje Lycklama a'Nieholt, Nedra Werakoon

As inequalities in the world multiply, migration across national boundaries is taking ever more variegated forms. This book assembles the findings of a major study into one particular form of this modern phenomenon - the recruitment of women seeking to escape poverty in certain Asian countries, and their subsequent employment in the Middle East and elsewhere. Isolated, unorganized and lacking proper legal or diplomatic protection, these women are very vulnerable to both economic and sexual exploitation. The book's empirical investigations constitute an important contribution to our understanding of a grossly neglected situation.
