The project takes place between September 2019 and the end of February 2021 and is working in three phases.

Phase 1

Project participants at the radio station, Mato Grosso, BrazilIn the first phase we have been undertaking research in the Brazilian states of Roraima, Acre, Mato Grosso, Amazonas and in the destination state of Paraná to understand the challenges facing immigrants working, or trying to find work. A summary of this work will be available here in December 2019.

Phase 2

In the second phase we are organising workshops that gather together migrant workers in order to (a) share common experiences of struggles and challenges in relation to working rights, working conditions and injustice; (b) collectively better understand why these situations are reoccurring, and (c) propose activities that include migrant workers, their associations, and the project partners in order to confront the injustices discussed in each workshop. Information on the upcoming workshops can be found here.

Phase 3

In the third phase the research team, project partners and representatives will be carry out interventions at a local, state, national and international level based on the activities proposed by migrant workers in phase 2. Alongside this website, a film and multilingual information booklet will be prepared and made available to migrant workers.  A final conference and engagement at government level will take place in Brasilia in December 2020.
