International Migrant Rights As part of International Migrant Rights Day, December 18th, there will be radio programs and broadcasts throughout the world. In collaboration with this global movement, Making the Links Radio presents a talk by Karl Flecker speaking to the situation in Canada.

On 4 December 2000, the General Assembly, taking into account the large and increasing number of migrants in the world, proclaimed 18 December International Migrants Day (resolution 55/93). On that day, in 1990, the Assembly adopted the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families (resolution 45/158).

Member States, intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations are invited to observe International Migrants Day through the dissemination of information on the human rights and fundamental freedoms of migrants, and through the sharing of experiences and the design of actions to ensure their protection.
