Tracey McClure met Ambassador Swing of the IOM on the sidelines of a Rome conference on migration. She asked him where the International Organization for Migration would like to see more progress on migration issues. She began by asking him how the IOM regards its partnership with the Holy See, whose Pontifical Council for Migrants and Itinerants has been heavily involved in advocacy on behalf of migrants and in humanitarian assistance.
In this interview produced by Nina Haase for Radio1812, Marieke Koning from the ITUC gives an update on the first year of campaigning for the ratification of ILO Convention 189 and argues why it's very important to achieve respect for domestic workers.
