Presentation of research on Filipina au pairs in the Netherlands

FairWork supports migrant workers who are vulnerable to exploitation. This also includes au pairs who come to the Netherlands through the au pair scheme. In 2020, Mitchie Boncodin-Isip, a student at ISS, conducted a a study for FairWork into the experiences of Filipina au pairs in the Netherlands. She concluded: Although there have been improvements in the sector, and many au pairs also have positive experiences, there are still cases of exploitation and abuse. Covid-19 presented additional challenges for many of them. 

On Monday, June 7, 2021, FairWork, in collaboration with Mitchie Boncodin-Isip, will present the findings of the research during an online meeting in English from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The program:

  • 4.00 pm Introduction by FairWork: information about the position of au pairs in the Netherlands and the research
  • 4:20 pm Mitchie Boncodin about her research and findings
  • 4.45 pm Room for questions from participants
