China: Exploited for profit, failed by governments: Indonesian migrant domestic workers trafficked to Hong Kong
Indonesian women make up almost half of the 300,000 migrant domestic workers employed in Hong Kong. They provide crucial services to local households and the community, freeing their employers for work. This report reveals how recruitment agencies in Indonesia and Hong Kong are complicit in trafficking migrant domestic workers to Hong Kong. Effective regulation of recruitment practices in both territories and better access to redress mechanisms in Hong Kong are critical first steps towards ensuring that Indonesian migrant domestic workers are free from the risk of forced labour.
