Regional and global processes are very important for labour-sending and -receiving countries to collectively raise and address the challenges faced by migrant workers. They help develop a common understanding among member states about issues pertaining to migration and reach consensus. The Colombo Process, for instance, consists of labour-sending countries as its members and aims to promote and ensure safe and orderly migration. The Abu Dhabi Dialogue consists of both the labour-sending and -receiving countries and enables member states to jointly design programmes and develop partnerships to adopt best practices. South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation serves as an important platform for the South Asian countries to voice the rights and protection of their migrant workers.
