According to an ILO report, the need to deter would-be perpetrators is widely recognized, but more effort is needed to identify cases of forced labour and to prevent the crime.
GENEVA (ILO) – A new ILO report highlights the need for tougher measures to combat forced labour, which claims 21 million victims worldwide – men, women and children coerced into jobs they can’t leave, trapped in debt bondage, trafficked for sexual exploitation and even born into slavery.
Efforts to prevent, identify and prosecute cases of forced labour often fall short of what is needed, despite good practices in some countries, the International Labour Organization said, in a report prepared ahead of meeting of experts on forced labour representing governments, workers and employers (February 11-15, 2013).
Many forced labour victims work hidden from public view, on fishing vessels and construction sites, in commercial agriculture and in factories.
