dc.description.abstract This report examines the experiences of migrant workers from Vietnam in four major destination countries: Malaysia, Taiwan, South Korea and Japan. Research findings contrast sharply with the positive discourse about the benefits of temporary or circular migration. Despite some success stories, many returnees had “failed.” Nearly all experienced some form of deception, abuse or harsh working conditions. Costs paid prior to migration were outrageous relative to migrants’ incomes. Documenting their experiences is crucial for promoting better policies in international labour migration within Asia. The study documents a decade of labour migration from Vietnam to Asia (2000-2009). en
