Programme Associate


         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 center of all its efforts, UN Women leads and coordinates United Nations system efforts, builds effective partnerships with all relevant actors to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming translate into action throughout the world.

The increasing international labour migration among women in the ASEAN region has created an opportunity for them to make vital social and economic contributions to their communities and countries of origin and destination. However, through the migration cycle, women migrant workers face a risk of violence, trafficking, and discrimination that limits their access to fair recruitment and decent work. They also have scarce access to protection and support services. UN Women collaborates with ILO to implement a regional project entitled SAFE and FAIR: Realizing women migrant workers’ rights and opportunities in the ASEAN region (2018-2022) which is part of the multi-year EU-UN Spotlight Initiative to Eliminate Violence Against Women and Girls. The programme delivers technical assistance and support with the overall objective of making labour migration safe and fair for all women in the ASEAN region.

Viet Nam is among 10 countries participating in the Safe and Fair project, along side with Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao People's Democratic Republic, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand. In Viet Nam, the project has been implemented in collaboration with multiple partners to enhance gender equitable and rights-based policies and legislation that strengthen safe and fair labour migration for women in line with international standards and guidelines; improve capacity of national, local government, social partners to implement gender-responsive policies and services for women migrant workers; as well as improve access to authoritative and integrated support services on safe and fair labour migration, including through the use of innovative technology.
