Migrant Rights Centre Ireland (MRCI) is a national organisation working to promote justice, empowerment and equality for migrant workers and their families. MRCI was first established in 2001 to bridge a gap in information services available to migrant workers and their families. MRCI is a non-governmental organisation and a registered charity.
MRCI’s Mission is to promote the empowerment and inclusion of those migrant workers and their families at risk of poverty, social exclusion and discrimination.
MRCI’s Strategic Priorities are:
• To strengthen the rights and protections for migrant workers who are at risk of or experiencing workplace exploitation, are trafficked for forced labour or are undocumented.
• To mainstream a focus on migrant workers at risk of social exclusion, poverty and discrimination within service and information provision, and within community and local development.
• To proactively provide migrant workers with the opportunities to develop leadership capacity.
MRCI's work is rooted in community work practice, which is based on the principles of social justice, equality and anti-discrimination. Through MRCI's worker Action Groups, Campaign Groups, Migrant's Forum and other collective spaces, the MRCI facilitates migrant workers to come together to identify shared issues, build power and take collective action for change.
The MRCI works on a variety of levels to achieve its objectives:
• Campaigns: Strategic campaign areas include: Workplace Rights, Employment Permits Reform, Combating Forced Labour & Trafficking, Regularisation of Undocumented Migrants, Anti-Racism and Equality
• Information & Referrals: The Drop-In Centre operates an information, advice and referral service to migrant workers and their families.
• Trainings: MRCI provides specialist information and training to agencies, organisations, trade unions and other service providers working with migrant workers around the country.
• Migrants Forum: A collective space for migrant workers to receive information and support, share experiences and raise key issues of concern to them.
• Advocacy: Workplace Rights & Irregular Migration
• Worker Action Groups
Laura Gerulyte is Receptionist and Administrative Assistant of MRCI.
