Lebanon: ‘Their house is my prison’: Exploitation of migrant domestic workers in Lebanon
Lebanon is home to over 250,000 migrant domestic workers, who come from African and Asian countries and work in private households. The vast majority of these workers are women. Migrant domestic workers in Lebanon are trapped in a web woven by the kafala system, an inherently abusive migration sponsorship system, which increases their risk of suffering labour exploitation, forced labour and trafficking and leaves them with little prospect of obtaining redress.
