Panos Migrant Labor Fellows 2017 announced

Panos South Asia named 15 journalists from Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka as the 2017 Fellows on South Asian Initiative for Migrant Labour.

The fellowships are being offered by Panos South Asia as a part of a Swiss Development and Cooperation (SDC) project for encouraging dialogue and discussion on migrant labour issues among concerned stakeholders, including migrant labourers, trade unions, and governments of labour-sending and labour-receiving countries.

“The selection committee had a difficult¬†time choosing the fellows from the applications. But we are confident that the selected fellows will do justice to the fellowship, reporting and writing on the migrant labour issues,” Ramyata Limbu, the Project Director / Head of Operations at Panos South Asia said.

The fellowship will support writing/reporting stories on migrant labour from the region and labour-receiving countries. The fellows will also have the opportunity to participate in an orientation workshop in July in Kathmandu, Nepal and first-hand experience trip to select destination countries that will link them with individuals and institutions from these neighbouring countries and understand migrant-related issues from a South Asian perspective.

The works of the Fellows appear in Panos South Asia’s Migrant Labour Blog.
