Thailand Social Protection Diagnostic Review: Social Protection for Migrant Workers and Their Families in Thailand


This study is part of the Social Protection Diagnosis Review, a comprehensive review of the social protection system in Thailand, produced under the United Nations Joint Programme on Accelerating Progress Towards an Integrated and Modernized Social Protection System for all in Thailand, which is funded by the Joint SDG Fund.

The study provides a comprehensive picture of the social protection status of migrant workers in Thailand, including analysis on the level of coverage, key challenges and barriers found on interconnected dimensions from labour migration management to associated policy and legal framework. With evidence-based findings, the study also provides an important set of recommendations that can be used as a basis to improve social protection coverage for migrant workers in Thailand for the sustainable benefits of all.
