The UN Treaty Monitoring Bodies and Migrant Workers: a Samizdat (updated)
Date: 01/10/2009 - 15:31
There is a lack of comprehensive public research on whether governments extend the provisions of the international human rights treaties they have ratified to protect the human rights of migrants and not only the rights of their own nationals.
The initial research for this publication was carried out in Geneva between May and July 2004 and covered 10 years of Treaty Monitoring Bodies (TMB) conclusions and recommendations, from January 1994 to January 2004. Research for the present update was carried out between May and July 2007. This research examined whether the increased emphasis on migration issues in the international context was reflected in the work of the human rights treaty monitoring bodies. This new report is based on data collected during these two research periods. It provides useful initial pointers regarding the current practice and priorities in the six TMB.
