Temporary Migration and Workers’ Rights: Comparing EU-Asia Experiences and Perspectives
The meeting will take place as a side-event during the Human Rights Council meeting of 13 June 2016 in the afternoon (15h00 – 17h00). It is jointly organized by CEPS (Centre for European Policy Studies), University of Tampere, the Faculty of Law of Maastricht University (The Netherlands), PICUM and Migrant Forum in Asia, and it will count with the participation of the UN Special Rapporteur on the human rights of migrants, Prof. François Crépeau.
This Policy Meeting aims at examining the challenges of new modalities of temporary labour migration to workers’ rights and international labour standards. It aims at comparing and exchanging experiences and public policy perspectives between Asian countries and the European Union. By doing so it will facilitate an enhanced dialogue and mutual understanding on the dilemmas of temporary mobilities to the inclusion, rights and protection of temporary migrant workers and their families.
