Improving Working Conditions of Migrant Workers
MUDEM-RSC’s Improving Working Conditions of Migrant Workers project has been put into practice in order to develop working and living conditions of refugees and asylum-seekers, especially to give social, legal, and livelihood counseling to the workers in the textile and ready-made clothing sector. MUDEM-RSC’s project has a significant role as MUDEM-RSC is the only center serving the asylum-seekers and refugees in this field in Istanbul and the surrounding region. Applicant refugee workers are monitored by MUDEM-RSC and provided with an effective remediation plan, which is implemented and concluded for them. MUDEM-RSC Istanbul office visits asylum-seeker and refugee workers on the spot to identify their needs and assures that workers have access to their basic legal rights. The remediation plans include guiding the workers about obtaining protection status and receiving a work permit, developing their social and working conditions, and enabling them to express themselves freely.
