    By Noreen Bowden | December 18, 2007

    Today is International Migrants Day, as designated by the UN. The date was choosen because it was on 18th December 1990 that the UN adopted the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of all Migrants Workers and Members of Their Families.There are 37 countries that have ratified the convention on migrant workers’ rights. Ireland is not among them; few European countries are.
