WELCOME TO CIMS

The Centre for Indian Migrant Studies is a Non Governmental Organization that aims to safeguard the rights of migrant workers. The team also works on various campaigns to encourage the public to take action on human rights abuse particular to migrant workers.
Migrant workers are critical to the fabric of our societies and they contribute tremendously for the success of our economy. They constitute nearly 85% of the population in some of the Gulf States. Though many migrants hold white-collar jobs, the majority of expatriate workers are temporary low-income migrants involved in manual labour, such as in construction, agriculture, transport as well as domestic work. These individuals represent the backbone of their economic development as well as our homes. Yet they are undervalued, ignored, exploited and denied their most basic human rights.
