Summary: 

This paper, “Research on the Labour Recruitment Industry between United Arab Emirates, Kerala (India) and Nepal,” was commissioned to the International Organization for Migration by the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) within the framework of the Abu Dhabi Dialogue. It examines the labour recruitment processes from India and Nepal to the UAE, with a focus on low-skilled and semi-skilled workers. It seeks to create an understanding of the current structures, challenges, and flaws in the system that complicate regulation and expose prospective and current workers to various forms of abuse and exploitation, most notably the charge of illegal recruitment fees, with the aim to promote the development of more effective regulation and fair recruitment practices in the future.
