This review was conducted as a “scoping study” of two distinct areas of recruitment policy and programming: (1) current government policies and initiatives to improve recruitment standards for low-wage migrant workers; and (2) current non-governmental models, focusing on initiatives that align with the International Labor Organization’s (ILO) Operational Guidelines for Fair Recruitment (especially guidelines #21-25).

The broader purpose of this study is to inform the Meneshachin project and identify promising recruitment models to facilitate discussions of their potential suitability or adaptation to the Ethiopian context, particularly in relation to addressing Ethiopian women and girls entering the domestic service sector in the Middle East.
