Matt Withers is a research fellow within the Department of Sociology at Macquarie University. His research addresses the developmental implications of temporary labour migration and remittances throughout the Asia-Pacific region, with an emphasis on South Asia and Pacific Island Countries.

His current research examines how temporary labour migration interfaces with the work and care arrangements of transnational migrant households, using the concepts of ‘decent wages’ and ‘decent care’ to frame the need for improved labour governance and gender-equitable policymaking in support of sustainable development outcomes.
