European report on development 2013 background paper.

This paper discusses the potential role of international labour migration and the rights of migrant workers (‘migrant rights’) in a post-2015 international development agenda. The paper is primarily concerned with legal rather than illegal migration and employment of migrant workers, with a focus on low-skilled workers whose international movement is
currently most restricted.
