Description

Background

UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace, and security. Placing women's rights at the center of all its efforts, UN Women leads and coordinates United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments to gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action worldwide. It provides solid and coherent leadership supporting Member States' priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.

Women are increasingly migrating for work within the ASEAN region, and today close to half of all migrant workers in the region are women. While women migrant workers are disproportionately represented in the domestic work and care sectors, women migrant workers are also found in large numbers in other sectors in ASEAN countries, including construction, agriculture, manufacturing, services, and entertainment. However, women have fewer options than men for regular migration and are often forced into lower-paid informal sector work with few funneled labour protections. Due to gender inequalities and discrimination, women are particularly vulnerable to violence and trafficking, and services for survivors of violence often do not meet their needs.

Women migrant workers make up 70 percent of the total Indonesian migrant workers. The majority of them work in informal sectors, such as domestic and care work, which are often overlooked and covered by social protection. As the COVID-19 hit globally, many migrant workers have been impacted badly. Some migrant workers delay their departures and are stranded in quarantine facilities. Those who are working experience labor exploitation, being laid off, and/or forced to return home. Approximately 180,000 migrant workers returned as an immediate result of the pandemic. While mass-scale repatriation may translate into socioeconomic issues for returned migrant workers, little is understood about the predicament.

UN Women is currently implementing two major programs on ending violence against women migrant workers, the Safe and Fair and Migration Multi-Partner Trust Fund Program (Migration MPTF). Safe and Fair (SAF) is part of the multi-year EU-UN Spotlight Initiative to Eliminate Violence Against Women and Girls. Officially launched on 20 September 2017, the Spotlight Initiative brings focused attention to the issue of violence against women and girls, moving it into the spotlight and placing it at the centre of efforts to achieve gender equality and women’s empowerment, in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Migration MPTF (2022-2023), on the other hand, is a joint programme that focuses on enhancing migration governance in Indonesia by supporting the Government of Indonesia’s capacities in evidence-based migration management, with the appropriate gender responsiveness, at the national and sub-national levels as well as to support improved cooperation at the global level. Building on UN Women's good practices of implementing SAF program activities, UN Women will continue to focus on the prevention and response of violence against women migrant workers throughout all migration cycles and ensure the gender responsiveness of the implementation of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly, and Regular Migration in Indonesia.
