Winrock International released research examining the experiences of labour migrants from the Philippines and the role of migration intermediaries (such as recruitment organizations) in creating conditions for forced labour or human trafficking in labour migration contexts. The report illustrates how misinformation and the requirement of recruitment, training or fit-to-work clinic fees by intermediaries creates risk of forced labour and suggests improvements for pre-departure training of overseas Filipino migrants to know their rights and avoid exploitation by intermediary organizations.
