UN Human Rights Council Urged to Act in the Face of Worsening Situation of Migrants Worldwide

We welcome the report by the Special Rapporteur and his efforts to highlight increasing restrictions placed on migrants’ rights, as well as the threats and harassment faced by civil society organizations who seek to assist them. These trends are particularly alarming in the context of Covid-19, which has led many states to enact emergency measures that in effect further restrict migrants’ freedom of association and contribute to exacerbating the vulnerabilities of certain groups.
