IDWF-GAP-MDW E-Discussion, August-September 2015 Summary Report
Activity or Event Report
This report documents the results of the virtual community of practice hosted on the website of the International Domestic Workers Federation (IDWF) in August and September 2015, with the support of the International Labour Organization's Global Action Programme on Migrant Domestic Workers and their Families (GAP-MDW). The community of practice, which took the form of an e-discussion, aimed to collect the organising experiences of domestic workers' organisations and to provide a forum for the exchange of good practices between the organisations. The experiences collected will feed into a Global Flagship Report on migrant domestic workers currently being prepared by GAP-MDW.
The community of practice was launched with the sharing of two organising stories - from Lebanon and Paraguay - and the following questions were used as prompts for the discussion:
While the discussion was open to everyone, IDWF also solicited the participation of IDWF representatives who were due to attend a regional meeting during 25-27th September in Bangkok.
