Ghana has seen a rise of unlicensed employment agencies who are promising lucrative job opportunities in the Middle East for Ghanian men and women. Very often, these people end up in situations of exploitation or human trafficking - they become victims of forced labour, physical and sexual abuse and inhumane treatment, overall. As to better protect these migrants, the Government of Ghana wishes to develop a National Labour Migration Policy that takes these matters into account, and fits into the National Migration Policy of the country.
