Social Security for Migrant Workers - A rights-based approach

In an increasingly globalizing world, the estimated number of migrant workers worldwide swelled to 105 million in 2010. The dynamic nature of global labour markets requires that national social security systems take necessary steps to ensure migrant workers’ rights to social security through effective international coordination. This publication is intended to serve as a comprehensive guide for the international coordination of social security, covering both basic principles and practical aspects. This publication is closely related to a series of training modules published by the ILO in 2010 dealing with the coordination of social security.
