Dhaka Principles Relaunched on International Migrants Day 18 December 2017
18 December 2017.
To mark International Migrants Day on 18 December 2017, as well as the fifth anniversary of the Dhaka Principles for Migration with Dignity, IHRB has re-launched designed translations of the Dhaka Principles, together with a revised implementation guide at www.dhaka-principles.org.
Now available in 18 languages, the Dhaka Principles are a set of human rights based principles to enhance respect for the rights of migrant workers from the moment of recruitment, during overseas employment, and through to further employment or safe return to home countries.
They are intended for use by all industry sectors and in any country where workers migrate either inwards or outwards.
Widely adopted into company policies worldwide over the past five years, the Dhaka Principles frame IHRB's work on Migrant Workers, including a deep focus on responsible recruitment (Principle 1 of the Dhaka Principles, expanded upon at the Responsible Recruitment Gateway).
