In Indonesia, migrations are mainly oriented towards middle-term low-skilled labour flows to the Middle East and the neighbouring countries such as Singapore or Malaysia. Historically, the Indonesian government was late in adressing policies in regards to the specific issues that migrants face. Nowadays, specific national institutions have been created in order to do so, but their lack of means and of coordination lead to a relative inefficiency of migrant support. In spite of this, the Indonesian government is aslo invested in the definition and implementation of various cooperation networks with the main destination countries in order to cope with exploitation and mistreatment problems that migrants face.
