- Human rights — Migrants
This chapter explores the Committee on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of their Families (MWC). Since its establishment in January 2004, the MWC has carried out very significant work. However, its task remains a difficult one for three main reasons of an institutional, normative, and practical nature. First, the Committee must find a place among a broad range of actors with concurring and sometimes conflicting mandates. Second, the rights of migrant workers and their families are governed by a complex set of overlapping norms enshrined in numerous instruments. Such a dense normative framework requires careful and harmonized guidance in interpreting the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of their Families (ICRMW). Third, the most serious difficulty encountered by the Committee is linked to the limited number of states parties to the ICRMW.
