Abstract/Summary
Migration via irregular channels has been the most popular option for Cambodian workers seeking jobs abroad as it is widely regarded as relatively secure, convenient and cheap. But some migrants face abuse and exploitation while others become victims of human trafficking. Irregular migration raises serious issues about the protection and management of migrant workers in both sending and receiving countries. There is international consensus that irregular migration needs to be addressed in a holistic and comprehensive manner by looking at its causes, responding to its effects and improving international cooperation.
