Author : UNICEF | 2012
Published By: UNICEF India, UNESCO
Internal migrants, by virtue of being a floating population, lose out on access to social security benefits which are a guarantee for the settled population which is linked to permanent address.There remains no concerted strategy to ensure portability of entitlements for migrants. Planning for migrant families who are not settled, but are on the move, warrants a fundamental rethinking of development approaches and models in order to protect and promote migrants’ access to social services and
enable migrants to become socially and politically active citizens.
