This report focuses on foreign national migrant workers from sub-Saharan Africa, north Africa and Asia, employed in low-skilled jobs, mostly in the agricultural sector in Southern Italy. Amnesty International believes that the system created by the “flows decree”, the Security Package and the inadequate protection for victims, facilitates the exploitation of migrant workers and creates obstacles to their access to justice. The organization believes that this system violates the country’s obligation to respect the rights of migrant workers to just conditions of work.
