In 2015, Lebanon expressed its support to several Universal Periodic Review recommendations to improve the situation of migrant domestic workers, combat trafficking, and support its victims. Although this means that the State commits to undertaking these recommendations, it is difficult to monitor whether real change has been made on these issues, especially due to the lack of detailed evidence around Lebanon’s progress on human rights issues in general. This guidebook has been developed to support a systematic and comprehensive translation of universal human rights standards on the rights of Migrant domestic workers and the prohibition of trafficking into indicators that are contextually relevant to Lebanon. This approach favours using objective information for monitoring the national implementation of human rights.
