Behind Closed Doors: Protecting And Promoting The Human Rights Of Migrant Domestic Workers In An Irregular Situation
Abstract:
Across the world, at least 52.6 million people are domestic workers. Although these women, men and children carry out a wide variety of essential tasks cleaning, ironing, gardening, cooking, driving, caring for children and older persons in private households – what they do is not always considered “work”. Migrants make up a substantial proportion of all domestic workers, including migrants who are in an irregular situation. Compelled to live in the shadows due to their status as a domestic worker as well as an irregular migrant, many are at risk of being exploited, ill-treated and denied their dignity as human beings.
