Mapping of Recruitment Agencies Supplying Workers to Jordan, Qatar and Malaysia

Funding Agency : International Labour Organisation

Project Description: The Centre for the Study of Labour and Mobility (CESLAM) at Social Science Baha conducted a mapping exercise involving Private Recruitment Agencies (PRAs) that are already engaged in or interested in being engaged in fair recruitment practices. The research project seeks to prepare comprehensive profiles of the selected PRAs that recruit workers for Jordan, Malaysia and Qatar. The study examined the recruitment processes followed by selected PRAs, including hiring, pre-deployment and post-deployment procedures. The research output helped ILO-Nepal in its search for possible partners for its two projects – the Integrated Programme on Fair Recruitment (FAIR) and the Global Action to Improve the Recruitment Framework of Labour Migration (REFRAME).
