UNHCR Comments on the Draft General Comment on the Right to Just and Favourable Conditions of Work (Article 7 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights)

Refugees and stateless persons constitute an important group of persons with specific vulnerabilities in exercising their work rights. Although refugees and stateless persons’ work rights are more specifically protected under the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees (1951 Convention), its 1967 Protocol relating to the Status of Refugees, and the 1954 Convention relating to the Protection of Stateless Persons (1954 Convention), the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) constitutes an important additional source of rights for both groups.
