Working Group
The Working Group was established on January 15, 2004, as part of the Permanent Council’s Committee on Juridical and Political Affairs, pursuant to operative paragraph 5 (a) of OAS General Assembly resolution AG/RES. 1928 (XXXIII-O/03). Its mandate was to prepare a draft Inter-American Program for the Promotion and Protection of the Human Rights of Migrants, Including Migrant Workers and Their Families (“the Program”), based on the draft presented by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, document [CP/CAJP-2038/03].

The member states elected Mr. Eduardo Acevedo Diaz (Alternate Representative from Argentina) as the President of the Working Group. After en extensive negotiation and a special session to receive input for their activities, the member states reached consensus on a draft program. This draft, along with a resolution approving the program, were elevated to the Permanent Council and then the General Assembly for final approval. With the presentation of the final documents, the President concluded the activities of the Working Group on May 20, 2005.
