This chapter summarizes the relevant law and provides recommendations for further investigation and action. It argues that continued discriminatory treatment of non-citizens in contravention of relevant international human rights instruments demonstrates the need for clear, comprehensive standards governing the rights of non-citizens, their implementation by States, and more effective monitoring of compliance. Since the seven principal human rights treaties deal with many of the problems encountered by non-citizens, States should pursue universal ratification of and implementation of those treaties — particularly, the Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families.
