Speakers at a workshop called for providing training among the intending female migrant workers to protect their rights abroad and reduce violence on them. They said this on the ninth instant while addressing the national advocacy workshop on "Fair and Ethical Recruitment Practice of Female Migrant's Worker" held at a city hotel.Refugee and Migratory Movements Research Unit (RMMRU) arranged the workshop with the assistance of WIF Project, International Labour Organization (ILO).

The function was addressed, among others, by Full Time Member of National Human Rights Commission Bangladesh Nazrul Islam, Senior Research Fellow of RMMRU and Associate Professor of International Relations Department of Dhaka University Dr ASM Ali Ashraf and INCIDIN Bangladesh Policy Analyst Advocate Rafiqul Islam Khan Alam.
