The Reintegration of Migrant Workers in Ethiopia

Author(s): Solomon Tesfaye Telila


Purpose: The purpose of the assessment was to provide some inputs that could help with the design of an integrated intervention to turn the socioeconomic challenges of women's migration and trafficking situation into a national opportunity.

Method: Data was collected from primary and secondary sources, including government ministries such as MOLSA, MOFA, M.O.E., MOWYC, N.B.E., and non-governmental /international organizations (I.O.M., I.L.O., etc.).

Results: The assessment results indicate that the problem's degree is more comprehensive than many expect. The processes involved in the migration of women for domestic work need to be looked into in three pivotal phases: pre-migration, migration, and post-migration. It was also identified that the challenges facing citizens migrating overseas for domestic work also emanated from those processes within these significant phases. Both legal and illegal players have critical roles in each of the steps.

Conclusion: There is a clear need for an intervention model that will be able to integrate all efforts coming from various players. There is a clear need for a well-designed national system that will be able to make the legal channels more attractive to provide enough incentives for choosing legal and authorized paths.
