WP-2017-08: A Research on Return and Reintegration: Case Study of OFWs in Taiwan

This Taiwan case study provided a perspective of OFWs from a highly regulated and mainstreamed system of labour migration. Taiwan has a targeted delineation for the type of workers and industry to which migrant workers are accepted. Although Taiwan is a host country that has progressive labour migrant policies and highly regulated terms of employment, but lacks the consciousness of shared responsibility as far as reintegration is concerned. Reintegration is generally thought of as the responsibility of the state of origin, but these migrant workers having worked and contributed to a foreign economy for at least a decade of their lives receive no separation benefits from the employers or the host country which could at least provide as an incentive for going back to their home countries.
