Migrant workers: living in the shadows

On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the entry into force of the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families, a special UN Human Rights Office event in Geneva focused on workplace exploitation and protection for migrants.
 
“Many migrants, particularly those in an irregular situation, often live and work in the shadows, afraid to complain, denied rights and freedoms that we take for granted and disproportionately vulnerable to discrimination and marginalization,” says UN Human Rights Deputy Chief Flavia Pansieri.
