Lobby & Advocacy

The policy treatment for migrant workers is a key human rights challenge. A large number of people leave Nepal to seek employment abroad. Many of them face rights violations including forced labor, exploitation, sexual abuse, non-payment of wages, excessive work, limitation of mobility, denial of access to services, or workplace discrimination. The difficulties experienced by migrant workers are reported almost daily by the Nepali media. Effective justice mechanisms and advocacy are vital to narrow the gap between internationally accepted standards and the real-Life experiences of many migrant workers. In this context, PNCC has been working with human rights and migrant rights advocates as to how migrant rights can be understood in the framework, including establishment of government led and run sustaining rapid response mechanism and ratification of various international conventions on migrant workers.
