Argument: Migrant rights have been eroded in many states
- Debate: UN Convention on the Rights of Migrant Workers and their Families
- Debate: Nations should increase economic and social protections for migrants

Meanwhile, there is no denying the fact that the national texts have, everywhere in Europe, undergone deep modifications, restricting the rights of legal migrants. A survey of the legislation recently passed or still in preparation on the admission of immigrants and their families goes a long way to invalidate the idea that the ratification of the convention is unnecessary."
