Prepared by Mark Taylor, Issara Institute.

This paper provides an analysis and perspective of labour recruitment along the Myanmar-Thailand corridor– the largest source and destination countries for migrant workers within the intra-ASEAN region. It seeks to advance our understanding of current practices and proposes steps to drive Thailand and Myanmar along a more ethical recruitment track. The paper also aims to help advance the growing commitments of leading global brands and retailers seeking to implement ethical recruitment in their supply chains in Thailand and in Southeast Asia, as well as globally. It presents the work of Issara Institute and how its structure and approach enables ethical recruitment on the ground.
