Policy Advocacy and Stakeholder Engagement

We pursue comprehensive and inclusive advocacy strategies and campaigns with government, business, workers’ groups and other civil society stakeholders in the region to create meaningful changes in the lives of workers and their families. We ensure that workers’ realities inform our advocacies and policy agenda, and the collaborative relationships that we pursue. We create spaces for networking, capacity building and common advocacy among government, business, workers’ groups and other civil society stakeholders in both sending and receiving countries across industries.

Justice for Wage Theft

Verité Southeast Asia supports the Migrant Forum in Asia’s Justice for Wage Theft campaign and has collaborated with them in putting together a white paper and convening a brainstorming session with representatives from business and the private sector to analyze the issue and discuss the role of business in preventing and detecting cases of wage theft and providing remedy for migrant workers experiencing the issue.
