The IDWF second Congress

2018 Stop Gender-based Violence Against Domestic Workers
Finally we will support some of our affiliates - specifically those in countries which have already ratified the C189 - to participate in the reporting process of the ILO.
In the regions, organizing and capacity building remain our key areas of work. We have plans for a wide range of activities and initiatives. We aim to support domestic workers working in highly restrictive places to associate and share information, including migrant domestic workers. We will invest more in research and policy formulation to ensure domestic workers are included in important thematic debates such as the care economy and safe migration.
