Implementation of recommendations from the 3rd to 12th ASEAN Forums on Migrant Labour (AFML)

This paper was prepared as the progress review background paper for the 13th ASEAN Forum on Migrant Labour (AFML) held on the 10 and 12 November 2020 in Viet Nam and online. The AFML is a multi-stakeholder open forum held annually as part of the ASEAN Committee on the Implementation of the ASEAN Declaration on the Protection and Promotion of the Rights of Migrant Workers (ACMW) Work Plan.

Since 2012, progress on the implementation of AFML recommendations has been monitored by the ILO through the preparation of biennial progress review papers. The current paper is the fifth in this series, following the development of previous progress review background papers for the 5th, 7th, 9th and 11th AFMLs.
