The foundational premise of this essay is that because migration, work, and labor – interconnected spheres in which health and human well-being are central concerns – are human rights issues, they are properly located within the human rights paradigm. Significantly, this work suggests a paradigmatic shift in the way governments, health care and related institutions, and civil society evaluate and engage migration. It urges that, rather than continue with the current version that treats fragile persons as disposable people, we embrace a worldwide model of migration analysis that pursues a human rights vision centering on human well-being.
