2017 Migrant Workers Program – Qatar

This programme has made me happy because I have come to know that there are people around the globe working so hard for the common issue and I have become even more enthusiastic to work for the human rights issues.

The Diplomacy Training Program (DTP) and Migrant Forum in Asia (MFA) held a regional training course on human rights advocacy and migrant workers in the Middle East. This training program took place over 5 days in Qatar from 21-25 May 2017, hosted by Georgetown University Qatar (GUQ). DTP, MFA and GUQ continued the efforts and collaboration to promote respect for the rights of migrant workers in the GCC and Middle East.

 The objective of the program was to build the knowledge and skills to protect and promote the human rights of migrant workers, and to enable participants to more effectively use internationally agreed standards and mechanisms in their advocacy for the human rights of migrant workers in the Middle East. The program also provided a valuable forum for the sharing of knowledge and skills, and for the building of support networks and collaboration between countries of origin and destination.
