12 (XXXIII). Exploitation of labour through illicit and clandestine trafficking[1]19

The Commission on Human Rights,

Recalling the terms of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination,

Considering the relevant instruments on the subject,

Aware of the fact that the problem of migrant workers continues to be of major importance to many countries, despite the existence of international instruments and despite efforts exerted by certain States, including the adoption of bilateral agreements,

Recalling General Assembly resolution 31/127 of 16 December 1976, in which the General Assembly recommended that the Commission on Human Rights and the Economic and Social Council consider this question at their next sessions,

1. Takes note with satisfaction of the thorough study, including the draft recommendations, prepared by the Special Rapporteur on the exploitation of labour through illicit and clandestine trafficking and of the report of the seminar on the human rights of migrant workers, held in Tunis from 12 to 24 November 1975;

2. Recommends to the Economic and Social Council to consider this question at its sixty-second session, taking into account the existing international instruments, as well as related studies and reports on the subject.
