Project in Brief
The objectives of the project are to examine the legal, normative and policy framework for the protection of the rights of migrant workers in the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), with a focus on the UAE and in particular Dubai. Having analysed this framework, as well as recent political and economic developments in the GCC region concerning workers’ rights, it will propose how this experience may be built upon in order to improve respect for these rights.
