Human Rights Messages on International Migrants Day, 18 December
PDF File Size: 48 KB | Download   
Migrant women are often employed in domestic service and face working conditions akin to modern slavery, including confiscation of their identity documents, low and late payment of wages, and long working days with no or little opportunity to rest and minimal pay. They are often exposed to abuses by their employers, including sexual harassment and physical violence. Moreover, they are often denied legal protection and access to effective remedies against these violations. Among the most serious violations suffered by children of migrant workers is the lack of access to education, exposure to economic exploitation and dangerous and degrading forms of labor. Children are especially vulnerable to become trapped in trafficking and smuggling networks, or to become victims of commercial sexual exploitation. States should take appropriate measures to ensure that access to education is guaranteed to all migrant children in their country, irrespective of their migratory status, and to intensify their efforts to prevent these children becoming victims of any kind of exploitation, notably economic or sexual exploitation.
