Migrants deserve respect, safety and dignity

The number of international migrants today is greater than at any other time in history. Yet, for many, the migration process is fraught with exploitation, discrimination and violence.
 
In a joint statement issued to commemorate International Migrants’ Day, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein and International Labour Organization Director Guy Ryder called on States to recognize that true sustainable development can only be achieved by ensuring that human rights and labour rights form the cornerstone of fair migration policies.

International Decade of People of African Descent: recognition, justice and development

The international community, in recognition that people of African descent represent a distinct group whose human rights must be promoted and protected, has proclaimed 2015-2024 International Decade for People of African Descent.
