- Enhance the protection of fundamental freedoms and rights for migrant workers during and after the COVID-19 pandemic in Kuwait and Jordan by working with unions, migrants rights NGOs and local legal aid organizations/practitioners in tracking and addressing worker rights abuses, particularly wage theft among vulnerable migrant workers;
- Support dialogue and research on laws and policies that protect migrant workers from wage theft and provide them with easier access to justice remedies for such abuses resulting in an issue brief to be used for advocacy on the transitional justice campaign, and
