Empowerment in online communities: An investigation of Indonesian migrant domestic workers
Wijaya, Stevanus Wisnu (2016) Empowerment in online communities: An investigation of Indonesian migrant domestic workers. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.
This study aims to develop a model of migrant domestic workers’ empowerment processes in online communities. Adopting a virtual ethnographic approach, this research gathered data from online observations and interview. Data was analysed using qualitative content analyses. The findings show that migrant domestic workers’ empowerment in online communities takes the form of online practices and their related outcomes which enhance the capabilities of migrant domestic workers to reach common welfare agenda. The model is unique in term of demonstrating a clear relationship between online practices and their related outcomes at individual and community level.
