Over the past year, Global Workers has leveraged opportunities to promote the issue of portable justice in the United Nations processes concerning migration.

July 7, 2006

In the United Nations processes described in the last entry (and the United States immigration debate I might add), there is virtually no discussion of portable justice—the right and ability of transnational workers to access justice for workplace wrongs in the country of employment once they have left that country.

Most migratory norms focus on the rights in the country where the migrants are physically present. But the migrants’ ability to vindicate rights violated in one state when they return home or move to a third state is an issue that has received little attention.

On July 12, Global Workers attended the Informal NGO Interactive Hearings at the United Nations headquarters in New York. The purpose of the meeting was for member nations to consult with NGOs and civil society in preparation for the General Assembly’s High-Level Dialogue on Migration and Development in September.
