An analysis of the legal framework governing Cambodia’s labour migration. The report focuses on the migration of women to Malaysia for domestic work and men to Thailand to work in agribusiness. The stories of Samneang (a Khmer man migrating to Thailand) and Sopheap (a woman recruited to work in Malaysia) are used to illustrate different processes of labor migration and applications of the relevant laws. The rules governing regular migration are analysed, and the authors also identify legislation that can be employed to protect those who become victims during irregular migration and be used against those who perpetrate and profit from it.
