Migrant Series #Ep5 - Laws Bite Back
Glorene Das, Director, Tenaganita | Sandhya Sitoula, Centre for Legal Research and Resource Development in Nepal
Over the next few weeks of this special series on migrant labour, we will be exploring the topic from the perspective of policy and economics; taking you through the forgotten history of a landmark court case, and delving into the specific challenges faced by domestic workers.
