Safe Migration and Prevention of Human Trafficking in the Sri Lankan Plantation Sector
This project seeks to develop a nuanced understanding of safe migration and human trafficking in the plantation sector. Run out of the Kandy office, this qualitative study will interview migrant workers, returnees, and their families in Badulla, Matale and Nuwara Eliya to investigate the factors and consequences of labour migration in the plantation sector. The findings and recommendations will seek to fill gaps in evidence in relation to the plantation sector and safe migration. The findings will be used to create a stakeholder dialogue on the issue and develop an appropriate policy response. The project is supported by the USAID funded IDEA (Increased Demand and Engagement for Accountability) project implemented by Management Systems International (MSI).
