On 11th November 2017, Sanja Cukut Krilić, DRIM project member from ZRC SAZU, Slovenia, attended the conference European Union, Brexit – the future of workers’ rights organised by the European Association of lawyers for Democracy & World Human Rights (ELDH). Upon invitation of the DRIM project partner YUCOM, The Lawyers' Committee For Human Rights from Serbia, which is also a member organisation of ELDH, she presented a paper entitled Insecurities and vulnerabilities of migrant and posted workers: the need for information provision (co-authored with Mojca Vah Jevšnik).
Posted as well as migrant workers appear to have little awareness of their rights, mostly because of the lack of union representation and their isolation in receiving countries. In this respect, information provision and access to information are highlighted as crucial elements in their more effective inclusion in new societies. The DRIM project was presented as an ongoing example of such an information platform for different categories of individuals on the move.
