Abstract

The increasing number of migrant workers from developing regions to developed countries, which encourages economic improvement in both countries of origin and destination countries, has dominated migration studies by economic and development approaches. The impact of the transnational migration of migrant workers had a significant effect on both the destination country. In destination countries, migrants workers filled the vacancy in the low-level sector (unskilled migrants). Then, the country of origin received remittances to the families left behind to support the economy and regional development. However, migrant workers, on the other hand, are the very vulnerable parties. Examining the case of Migrant Workers from West Nusa Tenggara (NTB), the problems that occur do not stop at the vulnerability of instances of torture, harassment, human trafficking, and narcotics couriers. It develops more deeply in the domestic problems of migrant workers. The high number of divorced marriages and the neglected children of migrants are other security issues that are important to solve. Therefore, this study analyzes the relationship between migrant worker migration from Lombok NTB and its impact on development and security issues, human security. Through the Migration-Development-Security Nexus approach, this study attempts to connect these three crucial issues to get a complete picture of the complexity of international migration of migrant workers from Lombok and Indonesia in general.
