Association for Legal Intervention: For Undocumented Migrants’ Rights in Central Europe – new international project!

Project: For Undocumented Migrants’ Rights in Central Europe

Duration: 28 months, from 1 September 2012 to 31 December 2014

Project partners: ARCA Forum for Refugees and Migrants, MENEDEK Hungarian Association for Migrants, Society of Goodwill, Association for Integration and Migration (Sdružení pro integraci a migraci)

The For Undocumented Migrants’ Rights in Central Europe project focuses on monitoring the implementation and enforcement of provisions contained in the so-called Employers Sanctions Directive – 2009/52/EC providing for minimum standards on sanctions and measures against employers of illegally staying third-country nationals – in five countries of Central Europe: Poland, Czech Republic, Romania, Slovakia and Hungary.

The participating NGOs shall simultaneously conduct research on techniques of directive implementation, the current legal framework and its compliance with EU law. They will also provide free legal assistance to the undocumented  migrant workers and migrants threatened with irregularity due to labour market restrictions . This contact with individuals will allow the project partners to bring strategically significant cases to the attention of institutions, administrative bodies  and national courts. The data gained through this work will be summarised and relevant recommendations shall be communicated to the relevant national and EU authorities, in the hope that the experience of Central Europe is being taken into consideration in future amendments to EU law.

It is hoped that this project will lead to the creation of a network of NGOs from the Central European region that is dedicated to the exchange of experiences and good practices.
