Analysis of Productive Migration Village Program for Indonesian Migrant Workers in Paringan Village Ponorogo Regency


The complexity of the problems faced by Indonesian migrant workers (IMW) is a problem that needs to be taken seriously. One of the efforts made by the government to overcome this is the productive migrant village (PMV) Program. Among the regions that are considered successful in implementing the program is Ponorogo Regency. This is shown by the appreciation from the Minister of Manpower for the way IMW was handled. Based on this background, the purpose of this research is to analyze the implementation of the PMV Program for IMW in Ponorogo Regency. This research is an exploratory qualitative research. The subjects and informants in this study were the village government, the implementer of the PMV program, and the family of IMW, IMW, or former IMW. The focus of this research is the implementation of the PMV policy for IMW in Ponorogo Regency. Data were collected using interview, observation, and documentation techniques, with the research instrument being the researcher himself. Furthermore, the data is processed qualitatively. Paringan Village has four pillars in the PMV program: 1) Migration Service Center, 2) Productive Business Activities, 3) Community Parenting, and 4) Business Cooperatives. As a stimulus program, the four pillars still have an element of sustainability even though the program has been completed. However, the role of the village government and local government is still needed to ensure sustainability.
