Working overseas exposes migrant workers to serious risks. In order to generate inputs for ongoing policy and recommendations for further research, this literature review uses 22 policy-oriented research reports. This study found that factors that could cause problems on migrant workers are: a lack of clear information achieved by TKI regarding work conditions in destination country, strong dependency to sponsors, as well as the lack of supervision and law enforcement toward those responsible for TKI sending.
