Leanne Dixon Perera – Blog 6: Sample Brief on Labour Recruitment for MFA

In February 2016, I was afforded the opportunity to conduct research with MFA’s members and partners in Bangladesh surrounding migrant labour recruitment between Bangladesh and Malaysia. During my stay, both governments signed a “Government-to-Government-Plus” or “G2G+” agreement, expected to recruit 3 million migrant workers from Bangladesh to Malaysia over 3 years. This is a draft copy I wrote for MFA of the initial findings from that research, which highlight civil society perspective on the ground during the negotiations, as well as uncertainty in light of a “freeze” on intake of all migrant labour in Malaysia, announced only one day after the G2G+ agreement was signed.
