International Migrants Day

International Migrants Day is commemorated on December 18 as declared by the General Assembly of United Nations on 4 December 2000 (resolution 55/93), considering the large and multiplying number of migrants all over the world. The General Assembly conducted the international convention for safeguarding the rights of migrant workers and their family members. On that day, in 1990, the Assembly adopted the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families (resolution 45/158).

So, this is a specific day to organize and support events to reaffirm the commitment to the rights of all immigrants.
