About 50% people are unaware of the information and support services for safer migration provided by the Government or NGO’s. This has been revealed from the survey conducted by IID from 1st to 13th December 2017 in Narail, Chittagong, Tangail and Comilla along with a series of KII and FGDs. To explore the issues migrants face due to information gaps and to delineate the true cost of migration were the main purpose of this study.
IID’s policy forum at Narail on fairer labour migration revealed that information does not reach the target people. Despite plenty of readily available information in the form of books, leaflets, brochures; there exists a disconnect between the information and people.
