The overall purpose of the GEM Toolkit is to contribute to eliminating discrimination against low-income women migrant workers in employment and occupation, and to shaping more gender-responsive labour migration laws, policy, and management in ASEAN for the benefit of both women and men migrant workers.
In brief, the Toolkit provides an overview of key concepts and definitions concerning gender equality and key gender mainstreaming strategies in labour migration (Tool 1) and guidance on gender equality in labour migration as laid down in international treaties and standards (Tool 2). It explains how to promote GEM in data collection and research (Tool 3); in law and policy (Tool 4); in bilateral agreements and MOUs (Tool 5); in the design, monitoring, and evaluation of programmes and projects (Tool 6); in institutions and in human resource management (Tool 7); in preventing, detecting, stopping, and redressing violence, harassment, and forced labour of migrant workers (Tool 8); and in ensuring the participation and representation of women and men in labour migration mechanisms and meetings and in media messages and processes (Tool 9).
