Centre for Study of Labour and Mobility (CESLAM) at Social Science Baha carried out an extensive review of national policies, bilateral agreements, and international conventions that regulate migration to and from Nepal and published it in book form under the title Governing Migration in Nepal: An Analysis of Existing Policies and Institutional Mechanisms in June 2012. The book provides recommendations to help bring convergence in the welfare and rights standards enshrined in the various instruments after analysing the implications and relevance of the legal and policy regimes currently in place and identifying gaps therein.
