NGO Roundtable Meeting to discuss the report on “Abuses against Sri Lankan Domestic Workers in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Lebanon and the United Arab Emirates.”

The report was presented by Human Rights Watch. This report, based on more than 170 interviews in Sri Lanka and Saudi Arabia, documents the violations migrant domestic workers face at every step of the migration process. It also documents how the governments of Sri Lanka and the Middle East fail to protect the more than 125,000 Sri Lankan women who migrate each year to work in the region. The meeting discussed the report findings, advocacy strategies, and collaborative future work in the field.
The meeting was hosted by Human Rights Watch, Women and Media Collective and ACTFORM.
