'Migrants and refugees should be involved with social systems without discrimination'
Emphasizing the need for protection of the rights of migrants and refugees, Global Compact for Migration should include measures on how migrants can get involved with the social system of a host country without facing any discrimination, State Minister for Foreign Affairs Shahriar Alam said on Wednesday. Migrants should be engaged with social systems, particularly with education, health and the labour market without any discrimination, he said while speaking as the chief guest at a national conference on “Intergovernmental Negotiation on the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration” in Dhaka. Parliamentary Caucus on Migration and Development organized the program at Cirdap auditorium, according to a Foreign Ministry press release. The junior minister said migration is a very core issue in context of Bangladesh as around one crore Bangladeshis live abroad. The Bangladesh government is constantly working to protect the rights of migrants through proposed Global Compact, he added. The compact is a member states-led effort for governing migration that will pay attention to ways of protecting the safety, dignity and human rights, and fundamental freedoms of all migrants regardless of their migratory status. Shahriar said the compact will have to be formulated in a way so that the human rights of all migrants are protected. He also stressed that attention must be given so that all kinds of skilled workers can enter labour markets safely and regularly. It should also have a guideline on how to combat irregular and unsafe migration and also protection measures to save migrant workers from any kind of violence or oppression, he added. To protect migrants from harassment, there should be consensus on taking initiatives for fair and ethical recruitment systems so that the labour seeking migrants do not face difficulties from middlemen or brokers, said Shahriar at the program.
