This thesis deals with irregular labour migration and human rights and analysis this issue in the case of Tajik irregular migrant workers in Russian Federation. The focus is on the examination of the human rights protection offered to regular and irregular migrant workers at international, national and regional levels. The case of Tajik irregular migrant workers in Russia is examined in order to reveal the level of protection offered by national and regional instruments to migrant workers from Tajikistan. Followed by an introduction to the irregular migrant situation, as it stands today in the CIS countries, the author discusses in chapter 2 the human rights instruments applicable to regular and irregular migrant workers. The human rights protection offered at the UN and CIS levels is examined in this chapter. The national legislations of Tajikistan and Russia in regards to protection of migrant workers are also examined. Chapter 3 deals with the situation of Tajik irregular migrant workers in the Russian Federation. The Tajik-Russian case study was chosen for two main reasons: First, the majority of Tajik migrant workers choose Russia as their destination country. Second Russia's punitive approach to migration policy and the vulnerability of Tajik migrant workers there, makes it a place where the human rights violations of Tajik migrant workers occur. Chapter 4 examines the situation of migrant workers in Kazakhstan as another country attracting migrants from Tajikistan. The focus is on analysing the national legal system of Kazakhstan in the field of migration and comparing the situation of irregular migrants in Kazakhstan and Russia. (Less)
