This book offers an overview of international labour migration and the ILO's efforts to protect migrant workers through a rights-based approach. It gives new insights into the factors that motivate people to seek work outside their country of origin and describes in detail the international norms that have evolved to protect migrant workers and ensure decent work for all.
The purpose of this manual is to guide the trade union movement's participation in shaping migration policies by promoting sound labour migration practices and reaching out to migrant workers.
