Development and Forced Migration (DFM)
Both governments of sending and receiving countries work on bilateral and regional economic partnership to enhance systematization of forced labor migration through free trade agreements. This program aims to deepen the study and monitoring of economic partnership and bilateral agreements in and outside the ASEAN and to develop advocacy campaigns within its processes.
APMM initiated the formation of the Migrants Caucus on the ASEAN, a network of organizations and institutions from ASEAN countries who advocate for the rights and well-being of migrants. APMM serves as the secretariat of this network.
