Abstract

This success story tells how PILAR (United Indonesians Against Overcharging), which was facilitated by the Center for Environment Gender and Development (ENGENDER-HK), a research partner of the Women's Empowerment in Muslim Contexts Research Programme Consortium (WEMC-RPC) became the principal instrument in the reversal of the key government policy SE2258 which was issued on 7 December 2008 by the Indonesian Consulate in Hong Kong. SE2258 would have resulted in the limitation of Indonesian women migrant worker's mobility and rights to change their employment agencies.
