Workshop

Training on improved access to justice for migrant workers

The Konrad Adenauer Foundation (KAS) and the International Labour Organization (ILO) will hold training sessions on 8 and 22 October to enhance the capacities of judicial staff to work towards improved access to justice for migrant domestic workers.

Details

In Lebanon and most of the Middle East, access to justice is rendered particularly difficult for migrant domestic workers who are excluded from the labour law and whose resident status is directly linked to their sponsor, i.e. employer of the domestic worker.

The overall objective of the training sessions will be to ensure improved protection and legal support to migrant domestic workers in Lebanon through increasing the ability of judges and lawyers to defend the rights of migrant domestic workers, strengthening the legal competencies of social workers to support them and building capacity to key workers’ organisations to strengthen their service towards migrant domestic workers.
