Unveiling the Realities: New Report on Migrant Workers in Thai Special Economic Zones

Updated: Mar 12

We are excited to announce the release of a groundbreaking report , titled "Navigating Challenges: A Study on Migrant Workers in Thai Special Economic Zones and Recommendations for Enhanced Labor Protection." This report is a critical resource for understanding the complex dynamics affecting migrant workers in Thailand and offers concrete solutions for improving their lives and working conditions.

Our in-depth study uncovers the daily realities faced by migrant workers in special economic development zones, areas designed for economic growth but often overlooking the crucial aspect of worker welfare and rights. Through extensive research and analysis, this report offers a fresh perspective on the policies, laws, and regulations shaping the lives of these workers, particularly under the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Structured in five insightful chapters, the report delves into the basic information about the study, examines the impact of COVID-19 on economic zones, presents detailed characteristics of migrant workers, analyzes data from the field, and concludes with a comprehensive set of recommendations. These recommendations are directed at various entities, including ASEAN-ACT, governmental agencies, and civil societies, with a focus on promoting quality of life and good labor practices.

We invite everyone - policymakers, stakeholders, academicians, and the general public - to download and read this important report. By doing so, you will gain an in-depth understanding of the challenges and opportunities in enhancing labor protection for migrant workers in Thailand's special economic zones. Your engagement is crucial in driving positive changes and ensuring that economic development includes the well-being and rights of all workers.
