Across Southeast Asia, workers fall prey to exploitative recruiters and employers

Migrant workers represent the majority of the region’s 4.2 million people living in modern slavery. Networks of recruiters, brokers and employers exploit migrants’ vulnerability, luring them with attractive promises of work and trapping them in industries such as fishing, domestic servitude and more recently online scamming.

Traffickers and employers inflict a range of physical, psychological and labour rights abuses on more than half of all migrant workers—often using deception, coercion and even violence to recruit, transport and hold workers without proper documentation. Even without crossing borders, many workers are exploited in factories and on farms and vessels within their home countries.
