    Forced labor and risky migration are part of a larger cycle of exploitation that stems from consumer demands for cheap goods; private business desire for rapidly mobilized and low-cost workers; weak labor and immigration laws in source and destination countries; and the socioeconomic status of workers. This brief presents key learnings to improve financial stability and foster safer migration for Indian migrant workers throughout their journey to and from the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. The research focuses on program activities funded by GFEMS to mitigate source-side vulnerabilities through better social and legal protection at the individual, family, and community levels.
