The report approaches the issue of migration through a gender lens in order to foster a more integrated, holistic approach to assess pre-existing mechanisms to ensure safe migration of females from the region. The report broadly pertains to the South Asian region, and focuses exclusively on three countries: Bangladesh, India, and Nepal. It focuses more on presenting a broad range of regional and global good practices that would help further enhance the reforms that are currently underway in South Asia. Ultimately, it is hoped that the report will serve as a tool to assist governments and other stakeholders to take stock of good practices implemented in different parts of the world and accordingly consider additional steps that can be taken in order to respond better to the risks and impacts associated with unsafe migration.
