Verité Celebrates International Migrants Day

Verité Celebrates International Migrants Day

On December 18th, Verité will join the global community in celebrating International Migrants Day. International migration and the human rights of migrant laborers is a common theme in Verité’s work across regions and sectors, and in many corporate supply chains. Cross-border migrant workers face increased vulnerability to exploitation and forced labor due to their foreign status in the destination country. Verité engages directly on this issue through several ongoing projects and participation in United Nations’ dialogues on the global governance of migration.
