ILO Director-General Guy Ryder's message on International Migrants Day 2021

Date issued: 18 December 2021 |

The pandemic has shown the vital need for all of us to play our part to protect people in vulnerable situations. Some of the most affected are migrant workers.

We can do this by pledging our commitments to treat migrant workers fairly, and to improve our strategies for guaranteeing decent work and rights for all workers regardless of their status.

Let us use this moment to spark transformative change, rebuild trust and to meet our responsibilities to those most in need of our solidarity.
