Forced labour

This note provides an overview of the ILO’s work to eradicate forced labour around the world. It highlights challenges at stake, key policy responses needed, as well as the ILO’s tools and ongoing initiatives in this area.

The ILO’s work and expertise can significantly contribute to achieving the priorities set within the Neighbourhood, Development, and International Cooperation Instrument (NDICI)-Global Europe, particularly the priority areas 1.6 (people) and 3.1 (prosperity), which focus on promoting decent job creation based on the ILO’s fundamental labour standards.
