Measures to Protect Fishing Workers and Solutions to Human Trafficking

Author(s): Jintana Unhavaithaya, Amonrat Ammartsena

The current article aimed to investigate problems as well as barriers associated with policies and measures to protect labor rights in Thailand’s marine fishery industries. According to the study, the policies and measures seem controversial and those implemented by each of the governments find discrepancies. Consequently, the rights of fishery labor are unlikely to ensure adequate protection. Based on this study, the proposed solutions are that the government sector adopts specific policies and practical measures and take guidelines or suggestions from relevant agencies into account and that the government sectors are required to cooperate. Furthermore, fishery labor must be conferred equal rights and full protection without discrimination.
