The International Convention on Migrant Workers' Rights is one of the UN's main human rights treaties. It sets a standard in terms of access to human rights for migrant workers and their families. Yet hardly more than 40 states have ratified it and no major developed country has done so. Although migrant labour is essential in the world economy, the human aspect of migration - and especially migrants' rights - remains a neglected dimension of globalization.

This volume provides in-depth information on the Convention, highlighting the opportunities and challenges it presents for states to develop new policies on migration and the treatment of migrants. It also explores the reasons behind many states' reluctance towards its ratification. It brings together researchers, international civil servants and NGO members, adopting an interdisciplinary perspective that includes not only law, but also sociology and political science.
