The social protection of migrant workers was one of the international labour standards that the International Labour Organisation promoted in the interwar period. Its aim was to overcome both technical and political obstacles that prevented migrant workers from fully enjoying social insurance. The 1925 Equality of Treatment (Accident Compensation) Convention and the 1935 Maintenance of Migrants’ Pension Rights Convention were the main results of the interwar multilateral talks on migration and social protection. The article traces this history, relying mainly on the archival records kept in the archives of the International Labour Office in Geneva.
