  • Organisation

    The Independent Democratic Informal Economy Association (IDEA) was established in 2005 by a group of informal economy workers in Cambodia. IDEA is a member-based organisation with over 10,000 members ranging from TukTuk drivers, Moto-taxi drivers, street vendors, small restaurant workers, domestic workers and load carriers. All these groups together form the national association, coordinated by the Secretariat that expands its member base, supports members, and at the same time defends the rights of informal workers and raise concerns to respective stakeholders. The group is in an active social dialogue with its members and authorities (e.g. municipality, police, companies, etc.) to create awareness and to develop joint solutions to end the abuses to informal workers. IDEA is active in bringing the issues of the informal sector into the labour-broad agenda, including social security rights. It currently has five branches situated within the provinces of Phnom Penh, Banteay Meanchey, Battambang, Kampong Som, and Siem Reap.

IDEA organises one-on-one direct meetings with new members and explains to them the advantages of membership, discuss working conditions, and identify approaches to improve their working conditions.

It works closely with related NGOs, networks, and government institutions to ensure implementation of existing rules and regulations for domestic workers.
