Global Action Programme on Migrant Domestic Workers - Research series in support of 2016 project report.

Promoting and protecting the rights of migrant domestic workers in transit: The case of Ethiopian women migrants

In the absence of a definition in international law and policy, transit migration is often described as migration to one country with the intention of seeking the possibility there to emigrate to another and final country of destination. It is often associated with undesirable irregular migration, human trafficking, circular and shuttle migration, and refugee movements.
