The last few years have witnessed the fourth wave of immigration of Vietnamese to Thailand:  migration of workers from Central Vietnam.  Stronger cooperation on labor matters between the two countries would not only open the gate for Vietnamese to work abroad, but could also address the current trend of illegal labour migration and protect the rights of migrant workers.  This research attempts to integrate migration and labor migrants abroad within a development context.  Through this conceptual framework and through an analysis of Vietnamese migrant workers in Thailand, this paper makes recommendations for policy planning and research directions for the future.
