International protection of the fundamental rights and freedoms of irregular migrants


Muhammad Ahmad Issa



The situation of the migrants particularly irregular migrants is closely related to the respect for human rights, as long as migration is a social phenomenon with a human dimension. The question of international protection was therefore before the international community, which recommended the formulation of legal solutions to the issue of migrants wherever they may be, considering their rights primarily a humanitarian issue, with a view to the rehabilitation of this group, which is deprived of the enjoyment of the most important human rights. This trend was embodied in the conclusion of the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their families on December 18, 1990, under the auspices of the United Nations, and was the culmination of a 12-year effort by a group of international experts. There are many international mechanisms for the protection of irregular migrants, including those relating to general international conventions for the protection of human rights, the Special Rapporteur of the Human Rights Council on the rights of migrants, and the Com- .mittee on the Protection of the Rights of Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families
