  • proposals to the International Migration Review Forum2022

    The International Migration Review Forum 2022 is nearing. We recognize the role that Migrant Workers play in the development of the Middle East Countries yet they under precarious working conditions.

    While countries such as Qatar among others have undertaken some policy reforms, a lot is still desirous. We as the Global Migration Network (GLOMINET) under the campaign, “Migrant workers Matter, End Modern Slavery!” aimed at calling upon the International Migration Review Forum, the United Nations, the Gulf cooperation Council and labour exporting countries to make significant amends to the labour recruitment, immigration, externalization and the working environment for migrant workers are calling on world leaders to do the following;

    We are altogether asking the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA), the United Nations and the host country Qatar for the 2022 World Cup to have the World Cup played in solidarity with migrant workers who lost their lives and or gained permanent disability while on duty.

    We are asking that FIFA and the designers of the jerseys to be used in the FIFA World Cup 2022 bear messages asking the Middle East Countries to reform the Kafala System and domesticate international labour standrads

    We are demanding that FIFA World Cup 2022 games begin with a moment of silence in remembrance of the Migrant Workers who have lost their lives in the Middle East.

    Further, Both labour exporting and host countries as well as the united Nations respect, protect and uphold the rights of Migrant Workers Human Rights Defenders (MWHRDs) in their diversity doing work on the issue of the migrant workers’ rights violations both in the host countries and in countries exporting labour in accordance with UN Declaration on the Right and Responsibility of Individuals, Groups and Organs of Society to Promote and Protect Universally Recognized Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms. Specifically, we call on countries to create a favourable working environment for human rights defenders who are peacefully either in groups and or as individuals advancing migrant workers’ rights and investigate, bring to book those palpable for torture, harassment, intimidation and disappearance of MWHRDs.

    Here is a comprehensive list of the Proposals to the International Migration Review Forum for your further consideration. We call upon all those concerned about the situation of Migrant Workers in the Middle East to support this cause and ensure that the proposals reach the International Migration review Forum, the United Nations, labour exporting countries, Middle East Countries among others.

  • Migrant Workers Matter, End Modern Slavery Campaign

    In 2018, the United Nations launched the Global Compact for Migration anchored on several instruments and conventions that seek to address issues of human rights, migration, refugees as well as labour. Among them are the Universal Declaration of Human Rights; the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights; the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and most importantly, the Slavery Convention and the Supplementary Convention on the Abolition of Slavery, the Slave Trade, and Institutions and Practices Similar to Slavery.
    With all those conventions and human rights instruments in place, migrant workers in the Middle East continue to live, work and endure in their work places. Many other migrants have gotten themselves undertaking jobs, roles and or duties they were not previously told they would do.
    As the business of labour export has become lucrative, many people especially young men and women are getting themselves convinced the Middle East offers the greener pastures they have been looking for, yet only delusional. While lucrative to the few, the labour market in the Middle East has been a den for many with tales of murder, torture, arbitrary detentions, denial of medical attention and an apparent lack of political will to undertake critical labour and immigration policy reform- the Kafala System.
    The Kafala system is largely believed by critics, experts and migrants themselves the major contributor of their suffering. The Kafala system puts the migrant workers under the POSSESSION of their employer commonly referred to as the sponsor or the Kafeel.
    Under the Kafala system, the employee has no righty to freedom of choice, decision, expression and movement.
    While countries such as Qatar have undertaken some policy reforms, a lot is still desirous. Taking into account those factors in summary, the Global Migration Network (GLOMINET) initiated a campaign, dubbed “Migrant workers Matter, End Modern Slavery!” aimed at calling upon the International Migration Review Forum, the United Nations, the Gulf cooperation Council and labour exporting countries to make significant amends to the labour recruitment, immigration, externalization and the working environment for migrant workers.
    We, among others are calling on all those involved to do the following;
    We are altogether asking the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA), the United Nations and the host country Qatar for the 2022 World Cup to have the World Cup played in solidarity with migrant workers who lost their lives and or gained permanent disability while on duty.
