UN Women grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security. Placing women’s rights at the centre of all its efforts, UN Women leads and coordinates United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world. It provides strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
Safe and Fair: Realizing women migrant workers’ rights and opportunities in the ASEAN region (2018-2022) is part of the multi-year EU-UN Spotlight Initiative to Eliminate Violence Against Women and Girls. Safe and Fair is implemented by the ILO and UN Women, led by the ILO Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific. Safe and Fair works in close cooperation with governments and social partners to achieve three inter-linking specific objectives: 1) Women migrant workers are better protected by gender-sensitive labour migration governance frameworks; 2) Women migrant workers are less vulnerable to violence and trafficking and benefit from coordinated responsive quality service; and 3) Data, knowledge and attitudes on the rights and contributions of women migrant workers are improved.
The COVID-19 pandemic crisis has made many countries imposing movement limitation policies including lockdown and large-scale social distancing. This situation effects negatively on Indonesian migrant workers as many have lost their jobs and forced them to return to their home country early. According to the Ministry of Women Empowerment, as of 29 July 2020, there are 34,138 migrant workers returning from abroad with 70% of them are women. Furthermore, in times of the COVID-19 pandemic, women and girls may be at higher risk of violence against women (VAW) and trafficking due to increased tensions in the households. As systems that protect women and girls, including community structures, may weaken or breakdown, specific measures should be implemented to protect the overall women and girls from the risk of VAW and trafficking with the changing dynamics of risks imposed by COVID-19. Financial insecurity of many migrant families that exacerbated by the pandemic plus multiple burdens faced by women returnees may lead to increase of tensions and violence at their households and may put women and girls in vulnerable situation of being trafficked or re-trafficked.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the increase of VAW during this crisis, UN Women through the Safe and Fair Program has been supporting the Ministry of Women Empowerment and Child Protection (MOWECP) to develop the Guideline for the Protection of Women Migrant Workers during COVID-19 and the Protocol for Handling Gender-Based Violence and Trafficking for Women Migrant Workers during COVID-19. The Guideline outlines important elements to protect women migrant workers during this pandemic in all cycles of migration. The protocol supports both government and non-government service providers by providing practical guidelines, which will help them to enhance the quality of services for women migrant workers who have experienced violence during the pandemic. This protocol also encompasses the underlying principles in the provision of services for victims of VAW and trafficking, which are highlighted in the 16 Essentials for Quality Multisectoral Service Provision to Women Migrant Workers Subject to Violence.
