The proposed project seeks to promote integration and tackle the social exclusion of migrants and their families, with special attention to the roles of countries of origin. It will assist CSOs and advocates working on migration issues in Myanmar, Cambodia, Thailand and Japan. It also aims to create multiple impacts on both policy and public perception of migration. Round table meetings will be held and advocacy papers submitted to relevant government ministries. The project will seek to sensitize members of the media to migration issues, and organize a photographic exhibition to increase local understanding about migration in countries of origin. This is crucial for Myanmar and Cambodia, where migration has historically been a sensitive issue. In the past, CSOs were mostly not allowed to work on migration issues. However, following recent changes, it is now possible to work on migration issues, and CSOs in Myanmar are eager to start programs. Mutual exchange among CSOs in Myanmar and Cambodia is strategic in developing responses as countries of origin. A consolidated response by CSOs in Myanmar and Cambodia, which this project will help foster, will strengthen regional advocacy efforts through ASEAN. As for destination countries, Thailand and Japan will be the focus of this project. It is crucial for CSOs in Myanmar and Cambodia to better understand the issues faced by migrants in Thailand, the major destination country, while the project also provides the project collaborators the chance to gain better knowledge of migrants' situation in Japan. This will broaden the scope of their understanding on migration beyond the GMS.
