International Convention on the Rights and Duties of All Persons Moving from One State to Another and of the States They Leave, Transit or Enter

The Model International Mobility Convention provides a holistic and rights-based approach to international mobility that integrates the various regimes that seek to govern people on the move. In addition, it fills key gaps in international law that leave many people unprotected by establishing the minimum rights afforded to all people who cross state borders — whether as visitors, tourists, students, workers, residents, entrepreneurs, forced migrants, refugees, victims of trafficking, people caught in countries in crisis and family members — and defines their rela- tionships to their communities of destination, origin, and transit.
