Submission to the Irish Government’s Consultation Process on Progress on the Implementation of the International Convention on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, 11 November 2011

Introduction

The Migrant Rights Centre Ireland (MRCI) is a national, non-governmental organisation working to protect the rights of migrant workers and their families, with a specific focus on those at risk of poverty, social exclusion and discrimination. Since our foundation in 2001, MRCI has sought to promote the right and to highlight the experiences of migrant workers who are undocumented, or at risk of becoming undocumented and those vulnerable to exploitation, including extreme forms such as forced labour and trafficking for forced labour.

This submission will address issues relating to migrants who are at risk or living in poverty and experiencing social exclusion and discrimination focused on specific rights such as, equality, access to and fair treatment in the labour market, the right to education, and the right to health.
