    Project RIGHTS

    This PhD is part of the project RIGHTS, led by Dr. Evelyn Ersanilli and funded by the the European Research Council. The RIGHTS project examines how the rights of low skilled migrant workers are shaped by origin and destination states, interstate dialogues, and the involvement of civil society and international organisations. RIGHTS seeks to understand why origin countries push for rights and why destination countries comply with these demands.  It looks at the role of other aspects of the bilateral relationships such as regional cooperation.
