The threat of exploitation hovers over migrant workers in Asia as many move from their impoverished home countries to economically successful neighbours to find better income, often in unskilled labour jobs.
From unpaid wages to human trafficking, the International Labour Organization estimates that US$ 50 billion is stolen from workers in the “worst” forms of exploitation. The total cost associated with “lesser” infractions that might go unreported could amount to many times more.
Many of these migrant workers return to their homes abandoning their court claims, unclaimed wages or simply to run from their abusers.
Justice Without Borders (JWB) is an organization formed in 2013 to help provide access to justice for these migrant workers through cross border litigation, using Asia as the geographic test bed for their pilot project.
Working with law teams in Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia and the Philippines, JWB was able to obtain $11 of pro-bono services for every $1 raised.
