ABSTRACT OF PAPER
 
Title of Paper:
Indonesian Migrants to the Gulf: Pathways to Irregularity
 
Paper Proposal Text :
This paper analyzes recent regulatory changes in the policies affecting the out-migration of Indonesian migrant workers. It pays attention to the growing formalization of the overseas Indonesian labor migration recruitment processes, and the simultaneous institution of bans on Indonesian migration to GCC countries. It examines recent efforts to develop bilateral Memoranda of Understanding between Indonesia and GCC countries, and evaluates the challenges encountered in these efforts. It focuses on the effects of these dual policy trajectories as they intersect with community development, transnational household livelihoods, and the everyday lives of Indonesian migrants whose status shifts between regular and irregular over the course of their migration histories.
