Irregular migrants fear state violence

Migrants

Migrants who go to work in other countries may not only face violence from criminals, but also from government authorities in those countries according to a UN independent human rights expert.

The issue of violence against migrant workers and their families is one of the topics during the week-long session of the Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice taking place in Vienna, Austria.

François Crépeau, Special Rapporteur on the human rights of migrants who participated in the discussion, told Anne Thomas that he hoped the human rights perspective would widen the debate on migrants.
