Qatar’s National Human Rights Committee (NHRC) organised in collaboration with University of Lyon Institute of Human Rights (IDHL) a two-day training course on international mechanisms of workers’ protection.

Dr Abdulaziz Abdulqader Al Mughaiseeb, NHRC Member, addressed the training session, outlining that the course seeks to discuss issues of immigration and rights of all migrant workers as well as those of family members.

He also said that the course’s objective was to tackle the creation of a suitable environment for them in their host countries.

He confirmed that irregular migration posed the greatest danger to the humanitarian immigration issue.

Al Mughaiseeb pointed out that the issue of clandestine movements and trafficking in migrant workers would also be addressed in the course, in an effort to seek appropriate measures to prevent and eliminate this, while ensuring protection of their fundamental rights.

He said Qatar is working to deepen these humanitarian concepts and he praised vigorous efforts and humanitarian attention given to expatriate workers by the country.
