Undocumented Migrants (Undocs)
We advocate for the recognition of the rights and wellbeing of undocumented migrants who are criminalized in different countries in the Asia Pacific and Middle East regions. The program works with international agencies and regional bodies like the United Nations, International Labor Organization and the ASEAN (Association of South East Asian Nations).
A conference of service providers and migrant organizations on the rights of undocumented migrants was held in South Korea last 2010 following a fact-finding mission conducted in Sabah, Malaysia to look into the conditions of undocumented migrants and stateless children there in 2009.
An international network working for the recognition of the rights of undocumented migrants was formed during the International Assembly of Migrants and Refugees (IAMR) held in Manila last October 2008.
