ASEAN, as an intergovernmental organization in Southeast Asia, adopted ASEAN Declaration on the Protection and Promotion of the Rights of Migrant Workers which contains obligation for both sending and receiving countries to provide protection and promotion the rights of migrant workers, including the undocumented migrant workers. The Declaration also mandates to establish an ASEAN legal instrument to ensure the guarantee of such protection of the rights of the migrants. Following the mandate, ASEAN Committee on the Implementation of such Declaration with its Drafting Team has been established. In its working development, the Drafting Team failed to make progress on the drafting of such instrument due to tension between receiving and sending countries in ASEAN over the issue of covering undocumented migrant workers into the draft instrument.

This thesis will try to analyze how far the obligation to protect the rights of undocumented migrant workers can be interpreted under the perspectives of general human rights law, labour law, migration law, and international law in general, and further, to incorporate such interpretations under the ASEAN legal framework mechanism.
