International Migrants Bill of Rights

The International Migrants Bill of Rights contains 23 articles outlining the rights of migrants. It draws upon existing sources of human rights law, refugee law, and labor law, and also suggests positive developments in areas where new norms are emerging.


The Migrant Rights Initiative conducts cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research on the human rights of migrants and then fosters opportunities for innovative action that reshapes the way governments treat people who cross international borders. Our Migrant Rights Database (MRD) evaluates how countries protect and implement 17 categories of rights according to 65 standardized indicators, based on the Initiative’s International Migrants Bill of Rights (IMBR).
