This policy brief shares findings from an empirical study that traced the evolution of the Domestic Workers Protection and Welfare Policy 2015. It discusses how the Domestic Workers Rights Network (DWRN) and Bangladesh Employers’ Federation (BEF) engaged in a decade-long policy dialogue, which was steered by the Ministry of Labour and Employment. It also sheds lights on how the ideas of human rights and labour rights have shaped the policy process, and how the search for a balance between workers’ protection and employers’ interest has determined the outcome of the policy dialogue.
