Indicators on the Human Rights of Migrants
This document was prepared for KNOMAD’s Thematic Working Group 7: Migrant Rights and Social Aspects of Migration, in the context of its initiative to develop human rights indicators for migrants and their families. It summarises Human Rights Indicators for Migrants and their Families, a KNOMAD working paper (in publication) developed and refined in consultation with experts and key stakeholders. The working paper explains the value of human rights indicators and proposes a framework, with examples of indicators for the rights to non-discrimination and equality, education, health, and decent work. It builds on a KNOMAD case study by Rosalia Cortes that describes progress in Argentina towards fulfilling the human rights of migrants and their families. Human Rights Indicators for Migrants and their Families was written by Pablo Ceriani Cernadas, of theCommittee on Migrant Workers and the National University of Lanus (UNLA), Argentina, assisted by Luis Campos, UNLA, and by Michele LeVoy and Lilana Keith of the Platform for International Cooperation on Undocumented Migrants (PICUM). Robert Archer, Plain Sense, copy edited the overview document.
