Exercise of the right to work, one of the fundamental human rights, is of particular importance to migrants and their status and has implications on the social and economic development of the Republic of Serbia. Countries across the world, including Serbia, reaffirmed their commitment to this principle by adopting the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration. In this document, adopted in 2018, the States committed to facilitating fair and ethical recruitment and safeguarding conditions that ensure decent work as one of their main objectives. States plan to achieve this objective by reviewing the existing recruitment mechanisms to protect all migrant workers against all forms of exploitation and abuse in order to guarantee decent work and maximise the socioeconomic contributions of migrants.
The existing protection models were assessed in a participatory research, the results of which are presented in this publication. This publication was developed within the Belgrade Centre for Human Rights (BCHR) project “Towards sustainable community-based protection for vulnerable migrants in Serbia,” supported by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the Swiss Government.
