Through this internship at the ILO's country office for Sri Lanka and the Maldives, Namrata tackled an entire ambit of labour rights issues. These range from migration incentives and patterns, and the inextricable link between migration and trafficking, to examining child rights in Sri Lanka via a gendered lens. With labour migration, Namrata's main focus was on Sri Lankan migrants headed to the Gulf States- the Gulf corridor being the most commonly traversed by outbound migrants. Namrata also examined various other labour issues in the context of Sri Lanka's women and children.
