HEUNI’s four regional mappings aim to form a deeper understanding of the risks, gaps and good practices related to protecting migrant workers and the role of both private and public sectors. HEUNI’s work will inform and support businesses in advancing the rights of migrant workers in a wider European context. The work will utilize information on the differences between different European regions and approaches to due diligence, corporate governance, and supply chains in order to identify ways to support businesses in their work concerning migrant workers’ rights. The project findings will be presented in two online workshops organized by the IOM in April. For more information, visit the Labour Mobility and Ethical Recruitment website by the IOM Regional Office.
The mapping outcomes will:
- advance the rights of migrant workers
- deepen the understanding of risks, gaps and good practices related to the issue
- help understand the role of private and public sectors in protecting migrant workers
- inform and support businesses in advancing the rights of migrant workers in the European context
- focus on barriers and best practices in migrant worker’s access to protection rights, justice and remedy
