Synopsis

This book is about influencing, shaping and designing policies and programmes that affect the international migration and employment of foreign women domestic workers. It provides an overview and synthesis of the causes, mechanisms and consequences of the trade in domestic workers. It also traces the full cycle of international migration, examining both ends of the migration process, from sending to receiving countries. This book is intended as a contribution to the shaping and designing of policies and programmes that would improve the situation of women workers in international migration. It will thus be of use to policy makers, researchers, community and women's groups, international agencies and migrant workers themselves.

Noeleen Heyzer co-ordinates the Gender and Development Programme at the Asian and Pacific Development Centre in Kuala Lumpur. Geertje Lycklama a Nijeholt is professor of women and development studies at the Institute of Social Studies, the Hague.
