Association of Experts on Services for Workers Abroad

Both the experts at the Ministry of Labour and Social Security in Ankara and Labour Counsellors and Attachés servicing at foreign missions of Turkey assigned by the Ministry of Labour and Social Security have decided to establish their own Association in Ankara.
The regulatory statute of the Association was approved on 27.09.2014 by Ankara Governor's Office.
Formed in September 2014, the purpose of establishing the Association of Experts on Services for Workers Abroad is to strive to protect economic and social rights and benefits of Turkish economic migrant workers and their family members and to make contribution to their professional development at host country who have been engaged in an employment activity dependently or independently at any foreign country.
The Association is glad to be at service for them upon their return to homeland. On the other hand, it is engaged in protecting professional interests of its members and prevent them from any loss of rights.
Some of our members who are still on public service are now actively working at the Ministry of Labour and Social Security on different hierarchic levels and at diplomatic missions of Turkey throughout 5 continents.  We have also some members retired from their positions up today.
Having experience based on fifty years of service finding solutions for legal remedies of social security and employment matters of Turkish nationals working and living in foreign countries, members of association are focused on the following key themes which are centred around fundamental topics of economic migration:

a.Rights of labour and social security,

b.Economic migration and related matters (i.e. family members),

c.Integration aspect of migration and,

d.Discrimination.

Basic fields of interest of Association of Experts on Services for Workers Abroad are based on:

  1. Foreign and domestic laws.
  2. Bilateral and multilateral Agreements on social security.
  3. Bilateral Agreements on labour force.
  4. Social security related matters referring to EU (Acquis Communautaire, i.e. free movement of workers etc.), Council of Europe, UN-ILO and OECD.
  5. Equal treatment for migrant workers on basic human right issues in respect of international Laws.

The association is set to make researches, prepare projects and organize activities and events on above mentioned themes and present the outcomes to public institutions or nongovernmental organizations and publish them where appropriate. The Association keeps an eye on national and international literatures about labour, employment, social security and migration.
On the other hand it is happy to take part in common activities and involve in joint programmes as a partner of national and international institutions, universities and other scientific public and private organizations over the matters specified in its statute.
Our association is anxious to enhance its capacity by establishing contacts and sharing joint acts with national and international institutions, universities and other scientific organisations within the context of above mentioned key themes.
