This paper’s objective is to contribute to filling the gap on social aspects of development by addressing the specific issue of political participation and the political organizing of, and by, migrant workers to seek equal treatment for all workers regardless of citizenship or legal status. The crucial right to do so is the right to join or organize trade unions or form other organizations. This right is firmly established by article 26 of the ICRM which applies to all migrant workers without distinction (covering undocumented workers also).
