First Secretary Harrison-Greenwood highlighted the barriers, discrimination, and human rights violations that migrant populations often face during their journeys and stays in host countries. He detailed our contribution to upholding their dignity primarily comes through delivering vital medical aid to migrants and refugees in challenging conditions. Our teams cater to unique health needs, ensuring healthcare access, vaccinations, mental health, and maternal care. He demonstrated that we enlist such comprehensive services, as only a balanced relief effort can counter the de-humanizing treatment encountered by migrants.
First Secretary Harrison-Greenwood then outlined the legal rights architecture protecting migrants, contrasting it with the consistent abuses they face. He asserted that it is our moral and ethical obligation to guarantee that migrants are not subject to exploitative labor practices, inhumane working conditions, or withheld wages. He urged the Third Committee to recommit itself to ensuring that the rights and dignity of every migrant are respected and protected. He then concluded by asking the Special Rapporteur to facilitate dialogue between private sector entities and civil society to reduce exploitative practices?
