News | 22 April 2014
The AP-Forced Labour Net is an online community of practice that brings together experts and practitioners working on issues related to forced labour, human trafficking and slavery in the Asia-Pacific region.

Resources and services available on the platform include a blog, online discussions, resource library, an e-learning tool, events calendar, and an “Ask the Experts” function. All interested experts and practitioners are invited to join the community and to share resources, experiences and ideas.

The first online discussion will run from 22 April to 2 May, and will focus on the question: What is forced labour, human trafficking and slavery? Do definitions matter, and why? From 22 April onwards, the AP-Forced Labour Net will be publicly available at http://apflnet.ilo.org.

“Coherence or fragmentation? Towards joint action against forced labour, human trafficking and slavery” is the first entry in the new AP-Forced Labour Net blog written by Beate Andrees, Head of ILO Special Action Programme to Combat Forced Labour (SAP-FL).
