Project objectives: This project focused on the advancement of migrant worker rights in Hong Kong and beyond. The team has partnered with several external organizations to establish commercial and legal solutions to longstanding problems facing migrant laborers. This project has been awarded the Faculty KE Award.

Project outcomes: Project participants were able to help the Fair Employment Agency, non-profit making in nature, become established and help migrant workers find employers in an ethical and transparent way. FEA has already successfully placed more than 600 domestic workers. For more information, you can visit FEA’s website:

The Domestic Worker Roundtable was held in April 2015 to discuss migrant labor issues in Hong Kong. Participants include members from 10 different governments, International Labor Organization, International Organization for Migration, migrant labor NGOs in Hong Kong, and representatives from academia and several international law firms.

The team is currently putting together research concerning unequal access to justice for migrant laborers through the Hong Kong court systems.
