Good storytelling strengthens social movements
On September 30, 2010, the Global Migration Group on the Human Rights of Migrants in Irregular Situation adopted a statement.
It notes that ‘States have addressed irregular migration solely through the lens of sovereignty, border security or law enforcement, sometimes driven by hostile domestic constituencies. Although States have legitimate interests in securing their borders and exercising immigration controls, such concerns cannot, and indeed, as a matter of international law do not, trump the obligations of the State to respect the internationally guaranteed rights of all persons, to protect those rights against abuses, and to fulfill the rights necessary for them to enjoy a life of dignity and security.’
The Global Migration Group is an inter-agency group bringing together 12 United Nations agencies, the World Bank, and the International Organization for Migration,
