Governing Labour Migration in Nepal: An Analysis of Existing Policies and Institutional Mechanisms
Governing Labour Migration in Nepal looks at the legal and policy framework that regulates migrant labour originating in Nepal. It examines the country’s laws related to foreign employment, bilateral agreements signed with destination countries and international conventions ratified, all of which directly or indirectly govern labour migration from Nepal. Analysing the implications and relevance of the legal and policy regimes currently in place and identifying the gaps therein, the book provides recommendations to help in the convergence of the welfare and rights standards enshrined in the various instruments. This volume will be a valuable addition to the literature on foreign labour migration, a subject that is gaining greater significance the world over. First published in 2012, the book has been updated to reflect all developments till the time of its publication in August 2017.
