Labor Migration in Central Asia
Erica Marat
eBook Edition: 2009

This paper focuses on labor migration to and from the five Central Asian states and Russia. It begins with a description of the major trends that emerged in the 2000s, followed by individual sections on the difficulties migrants face while finding jobs, acquiring necessary work permits, and enduring difficult work conditions. A section on slavery and trafficking in human beings examines Central Asian governments’ efforts to protect their citizens by endorsing pertinent legislation and strengthening law enforcement structures. This survey is followed by a critique of the region’s weak efforts to cooperate on labor migration issues. Finally, the paper concludes with predictions about how the global economic downturn will impact labor migration during 2009-2010. (From Author)
