In order to combat human rights violations experienced by migrants, the Mekong Migration Network's chairperson, Jackie Pollock urged the Thai government and others in the Greater Mekong Subregion to eliminate situations which can lead to abusive and exploitative working conditions and leave migrants vulnerable to arrest, detention and deportation.
She asked authorities to reform the procedures to ensure migrant workers treatment is humane, transparent and subject to legal oversight.

"It reveals that even after the Burmese migrants had got their legal documents, it does not improve working conditions," says Jackie Pollock, director of the Migrant Assistance Programme Foundation, a labour rights lobby based in the northern Thai city of Chiang Mai.
Yet Hall and Pollock confirmed during interviews that the very act of the migrants striking for a week has much to do with the NV status that the Burmese enjoy.
"Previously, employers would have sacked the striking workers," says Pollock.
Jackie Pollock, the founder of MAP, told The Irrawaddy that the workers visas are now good for two years.
But, she said the five workers can not return to their jobs in the factory.
Other issues will be negotiated on Tuesday, she said.
Jackie Pollock said, "They (the factory) don't pay the minimum wage and they make workers put in long hours and work at night without any extra pay because they say that's to pay off the passports. But the workers have done that for nine months.
There has to be really strong law enforcement against confiscating the passports," said Pollock.
