Nepal: Out on a limb: Nepalese migrant workers failed by state and recruitment industry
Hundreds of thousands of Nepalese migrate abroad every year to find work. Many end up in the Gulf states or Malaysia, working under abusive and exploitative conditions. Brokers and recruitment agencies in Nepal routinely deceive migrants about the work, pay and conditions awaiting them. As a consequence, migrants are exploited, trafficked for forced labour. However, things could be different, the migration process safer and more successful, if the government were to enforce its own existing regulations.
