Migration and Development
On 18 December 1990, the General Assembly adopted the International Convention on the
Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families.
Ten years later, on 4 December 2000, the General Assembly proclaimed 18 December as
International Migrants Day.
Nearly every country is affected by migration. No society can consider its future without
factoring in the effects of human mobility. Yet too often men and women cannot adequately
pursue opportunities for decent work and a better life, the skills and credentials of migrants go unrecognized and companies and households cannot employ the workers they need. In October 2013, the General Assembly at its High-Level Dialogue on International Migration and Development, reaffirmed the need to promote and protect effectively the human rights and fundamental freedoms of all migrants, regardless of their migration status.
The conversation will focus on the nature of international migration and the co-relation
between migration and development.
