In search of equality - A critical analysis of non-discrimination provisions in human rights treaties as they apply to migrant workers in Sub-Saharan Africa

Abstract
The question that links all aspects of this thesis is how democratic

The question that links all aspects of this thesis is how democratic

nations implement international human rights law to protect their foreign

migrant workers from unequal treatment.

First, I examine international legal principles that are primarily

focused on the principle of non-discrimination in international law. I

describe and critically analyse previous publications, postulations,

universal and regional instruments that were designed to address the

protection of migrant workers from in human rights law.

Secondly, I describe and critically analyse the essential features of

State protections of migrant workers of two African States that receive

large numbers of migrant workers: Nigeria and South Africa.

Thirdly, I offer recommendations for those States to improve their

protection of migrant workers.

Hopefully, the contribution this dissertation will make to the

protection of migrant workers within human rights law are as follows:

First, through its method of analysis; secondly, through its examination

of the practices of the two African States I have selected for study; and

thirdly, through its recommendations for improvements. (Less)
