ECVC Report – Migration and Rural Wage-Labour

The various forms of exploitation of migrant wage-workers occurring predominantly in the agricultural sector in Europe can’t leave us indifferent. Nor can the repression and violence of States and European institutions in response to the massive migratory flows engendered by socio-economic, climatic and political destabilization in many countries.


In this document ECVC analyzes the causes and effects of the exploitation of agricultural workers and explores means and strategies that would help put an end to these abuses. La Vía Campesina in Europe, representing farmers and agricultural workers, grounds its politically stance on the principles of food sovereignty, human rights, a peasant economy and solidarity between Peoples.
