Original Text: Irregular Migration and Human Rights: Tajik Irregular Migrant Workers in Russia


This article considers irregular migration in Russia from a human rights perspective by demonstrating it in the case of Tajik irregular migrant workers in Russia.

Since the break-up of the Soviet Union irregular migration has become a reality in the Russian Federation. Countries of Central Asia including Tajikistan have become the largest suppliers of both regular and irregular migrant workers to Russia.

Although the forms and characteristics of the irregular migration in Russia vary considerably, the maintenance of the visa free regime between these countries, the tightened immigration controls and various bureaucratic obstacles in the receiving country should be discerned as modes for becoming and ceasing to be an irregular migrant.

The irregularity of their status makes migrant workers extremely vulnerable to the human rights abuse which in turn makes it even more difficult for orderly and sustainable management of the migratory movements.

Since the break-up of the Soviet Union, irregular migration has become a reality in the Russian Federation. Countries of Central Asia, including Tajikistan,have become the largest suppliers of both regular and irregular migrant workers to Russia.

Although the forms and characteristics of the irregular migration in Russia vary considerably, the maintenance of the visa free regime between these countries, the tightened immigration controls and various bureaucratic obstacles in the receiving country, should be discerned as modes for becoming and ceasing to be an irregular migrant.

The irregularity of their status makes migrant workers extremely vulnerable to human rights abuses, which in turn makes it even more difficult for an orderly and sustainable management of the migratory movements.
