Publication: Human Rights Indicators for Migrants and their Families (by Pablo Ceriani Cernadas, Michele LeVoy, Lilana Keith, Luis Campos )



The working paper shows that the use of indicators for the human rights of migrants can facilitate and monitor progress and compliance with legal obligations; that the fulfilment of migrants’ rights is an essential tool for social integration in multicultural societies, and that migrants’ rights indicators promote evidence based policy-making.The document is structured in four sections. The first elaborates further on the purpose of developing indicators. The second presents an illustrative indicators framework for the human rights of migrants, for discussion and adaptation according to context, and specifically for the right to non-discrimination and equality of treatment, the right to education, right to health, and right to decent work. The third discusses some key methodological concerns with specific relevance to migrants, and explores in particular questions around sources of information for use as indicators. The fourth provides several examples of data collection on migration and migrants rights’ from across the globe, by various different stakeholders.The paper provides a practical tool for governments at all levels and other key stakeholders to advance development objectives through the protection of migrants’ human rights.

    Putting people in detention has become a routine – rather than exceptional – response to the irregular entry or stay of asylum-seekers and migrants in a number of countries. Some governments view detention as a means to dissuade irregular migration to or applying for asylum in their territories. While acknowledging that irregular entry or stay may present many challenges to States, detention is not the answer.
