PDF File Size: 133 KB | Download   
The National Human Rights Commission has been involved in a number of ways to contribute to the respect, protection and promotion of human rights since its formation in 2000. In recent years, NHRC has extended its activities on the rights of migrant workers as well. The aim of this publication is to make public the major efforts of NHRC on different issue of migrant's rights. We expect that the booklet will provide essential information on the issue. The booklet mainly entails brief information on the status of Nepali migrant
workers, national and international commitments and NHRC responses through investigating, monitoring and promotional activities. In addition, the booklet contains information relating to the services offered by NHRC, list of NHRC publications that may partly deal with the issue followed by partnering, coordinating and collaborative efforts and strategies. Migration is a distinctive nature of freedom that human persons enjoy across the world. In recent years, migrating abroad in search of work has become common and popular trend for many Nepali youths. People prefer to work abroad mainly because of economic compulsion and social causes. Recent information shows that estimated 250 million people live as the migrant workers abroad. In the recent time estimated 4 million Nepali live and work abroad. In terms of financial gains,
migration has positive effects. However, if it is seen from familial and
social perspective, it does have the negative outcomes too. In Nepal and many other developing countries, there is an increasing trend of people going abroad in search of employment. The reason behind choosing this option are economic problem in the country, shortage of farming land, industrial and business shrink, internal conflict, unemployment and rapid population growth and so on so forth. In addition gender and ethnic discrimination, lack of good
governance, political instability, low pay and social disorder lead people
to choose the option of seeking their fortune abroad. This trend is growing with the increase in population.
