IOM, UN Partners associate with Mozambican Authorities to Enhance and Protect Migrant Workers’ Rights

The UN Migration Agency (IOM), International Labour Organization (ILO) and the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNOHCHR) have collaborated to enhance and protect the Rights of all Migrant Workers and Members of their Families (CMW).

The four-day National Training on Treaty Body Reporting and Workshop on the socialization and domestication of the CMW also aims to improve the government’s capacity to review its legal, policy and institutional framework in Mozambique. The Convention sets minimum human rights standards for migrant workers and members of their families, with a special focus on eliminating labour exploitation in the migration process.

According to the IOM Mozambique Chief of Mission, Katharina Schnoering, “Mozambique is member to seven international treaties and optional protocols since 2013 and it was one of the three countries in Southern Africa to ratify this convention. I want to take the opportunity to congratulate the Government of Mozambique for this important step. Now, it is also important to work on the domestication of the Convention into the Mozambican legislation so that these commitments become a reality.”

The facilitators team is comprised of four human rights specialists working at UNOHCHR Pretoria, the Regional Office for Southern Africa and Geneva headquarters. The trainers team includes two members of the Mozambican inter-ministerial committee, representing the Ministry of Justice, Constitutional and Religious Affairs, and the Ministry of Labour, Work and Social Security.
