Third Committee, 25th meeting – 70th General Assembly

Promotion and protection of human rights
23 October, 2015

Professor François Crépeau presented his report to the Social, Humanitarian and Cultural Committee (Third Committee), starting at 46:30.

”Countries of destination can support the integration of migrants into society by facilitating access to justice, without fear of detection, detention or deportation, in order to help migrants fight for their rights; and ensuring that migrants can access basic social protection services irrespective of their migration status would significantly reduce the precariousness of the migrant situation. They must tackle racism and xenophobia.
