Invisible Workers of the World (IWW) - a civil society initiative.

Qualitative Info

Invisible workers of the world (Nevidni delavci sveta) is an informal group of activists which works to raise awareness, support, give advice to immigrants/minorities and encourages their political participation. It consists of migrant workers themselves as well of some civil society activists. The group started monitoring living and working conditions of migrant workers while this was still a marginal topic in the public discourse.  It tried not only to raise awareness of their situation in the general public, but also pioneered their self-organisation.
