Dialogue on Migration Issues
ACTION AID | In the backdrop of increasing fiscal austerity worldwide, ever larger numbers of people will be pushed to rely on precarious work for their livelihood. The increasing inter-regional disparity within and among countries will drive people into circular migration flows in search of better livelihood. At the same time the rising pressure on resources in destination areas – mainly urban centres – are likely to induce mobility-restricting government regulation of migration and migrants’ lives.
Workers Solidarity Network (WSN) is hubbed in ActionAid Association India (AA) and is a collective of experts and practitioners engaged in improving the lives and working conditions of labour in India and abroad. Formed in 2017, the WSN aims to broaden the discourse on labour issues by facilitating dialogues between workers and other stakeholders on the most pressing issues
In cooporation with RLS the WSN is organising a roundtable conference to bring together representatives from civil society, trade unions, government and international organizations to address the complex migrants´ issues. The purpose is to facilitate a dialogue among these groups towards mutual learnings and developing recommendations for future interventions in the field of migration. Further guidelines should be developed based on learnings of key stakeholders for designing and implementing successful interventions to improve the working and living conditions of migrant workers.
ActionAid Association India works in solidarity with the most marginalised communities to achieve a greater Social and Ecological Justice. ActionAid´s aim is to achieve leadership and empowerment of the marginalised in combating poverty and injustice.
