Abdul Maasba Magassing, S.M. Noor, Iin Karita Sakharina, Salma Laitupa, Viyani Annisa Permatasari


The purpose of this article is to discuss the legal protection of migrant workers, however there is a difference between the legal system and culture of the sending states and the recipient country, causing problems to arise. To anticipate such problems both the sending states and the receiving states are obliged to legal protection measures so that they may avoided becoming the object of arbitrariness/lawlessness. Therefore, to avoid this, one of the efforts that needs to be done is to make a bilateral agreement in the form of a legal document in the model of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that is not too formal, but is quite effective with the recipient country. In addition to this, the Indonesian government’s commitment is demonstrated by its active participation in the discussion of various international legal instruments related to the rights of migrant workers. This article uses a literature study with a juridical approach and is complemented by field/case data.
