The Committee of Experts on the Application of Conventions and Recommendations has for the fourth time examined national legislation and practice concerning the issues dealt with in the two ILO Conventions relating to forced labour (Conventions Nos. 29 and 105). In spite of the universal condemnation of forced labour and the adoption of constitutional and legislative provisions abolishing it, forced or compulsory labour practices unfortunately continue to exist and many people around the world are still subjected to it. The Survey also shows that, besides “traditional” forms of forced labour which still exist, new forms of forced labour have emerged in the past decades and have come into greater prominence.
