Study on Obstacles to Effective Access of Irregular Migrants to Minimum Social Rights
Illegally resident immigrants are a particularly vulnerable group within European societies. This publication aims to identify the minimum rights to be granted to such persons, placing the emphasis on protecting social rights in the host countries. The author considers each of the aforementioned minimum rights in the light of the relevant international human rights instruments, including those adopted by the Council of Europe. He also looks at obstacles to access by illegal migrants to a minimum standard of protection in terms of each of these rights, referring to various examples of legislation and practice adopted by selected member states of the Council of Europe.
