Authors/editor(s): Tatyana Bozrikova and Aliya Kadyrova

Based on desk research into the policies and procedures used by the private employment agencies that facilitate the employment of domestic workers in Kazakhstan, this report examines the status of domestic workers there. After examining gender mainstreaming and migrant issues relating to domestic workers in Kazakhstan, the study recommends ways to improve legislation and law enforcement practices governing private employment agencies.

The study was conducted within the framework of the second phase of the Regional Migration Programme, implemented by the International Organization for Migration, UN Women and the World Bank, with financial support from the UK Government.
