Felipe González Morales, Special Rapporteur on the human rights of migrants (Geneva)

Protection of the labour and human rights of migrant workers

In the present report, the Special Rapporteur on the human rights of migrants, Felipe González Morales, outlines the main activities undertaken during the reporting period since his most recent report to the General Assembly.

In the report, the Special Rapporteur highlights the human rights challenges faced by migrant workers by providing an analysis of how labour migration can put migrants in increased positions of precarity and vulnerability to human rights violations.

He discusses how to address situations of vulnerability of migrants by creating and strengthening migrant labour protection mechanisms.

On the basis of the information and analysis provided by States, international organizations, civil society and other stakeholders, the Special Rapporteur identifies promising practices, ongoing efforts and existing challenges and provides a set of recommendations aimed at strengthening labour migration governance mechanisms and programmes to enhance the protection of the human rights of migrants.
