Effective migration management fully takes account of the protection of the human rights of migrants, irrespective of their migratory status. While previous International Dialogue on Migration (IDM) workshops have explored economic and other aspects of migration, a focus on human rights places the migrant at the centre of the phenomenon of migration, acknowledging the deeply human nature of migration and the inherent dignity, equality and inalienable rights of all human beings. The best way to ensure effective respect for the human rights of migrants is through elaboration and implementation of national legislation and policy frameworks, consistent with international human rights standards. Nevertheless, while governments are increasingly incorporating human rights considerations into migration policies, there exists a considerable gap between the formal applicability of human rights and the enjoyment of those rights in practice.
