Featured report: Labour rights in Indonesia’s seafood sector

The Freedom Fund commissioned a study with the Sydney Southeast Asia Centre at the University of Sydney in late 2022 aimed at providing insights and recommendations to bolster the efforts of partners working in Indonesia’s seafood sector. The study outlines labour organising models in Indonesia, focusing on informal and/or migrant workers, and identifies promising approaches for worker mobilisation adaptable to the seafood sector. It also examines the existing scope of work of the partners to explore new approaches for mobilisation and recommends collaborative approaches to strengthen programmatic impacts.
