Projects: forced labour

  1. Combating forced labour and discrimination in Africa

    1 March 2006 - 30 September 2008

    Niger, one of the world’s most poverty-stricken nations, is one of a few African countries to have recognised a forced labour problem linked in large part to discrimination against people of slave descent.

  2. Forced labour, discrimination and poverty reduction among indigenous peoples in Bolivia, Peru and Paraguay

    1 March 2006 - 30 September 2008

    Recent ILO research indicates that forced labour affects at least 1.3 million people in Latin America. In-depth field research in the rural areas of Bolivia, Paraguay and Peru, has confirmed earlier perceptions that indigenous people are particularly vulnerable to a form of forced labour called debt bondage.

  3. Combating trafficking in persons in Brazil

    1 October 2005 - 1 September 2008

    Joint Project IPEC SAP-FL

  4. Core support for SAP-FL - Ireland

    1 January 2005 - 31 July 2011

    Provides core support to the Special Action Programme to Combat Forced Labour

  5. Combating Forced Labour in Brazil

    1 April 2002 - 31 December 2007

    In spite of recent progress, forced labour in Brazil remains a serious problem to be given top priority. The Project has produced indicators of relative success, which have been further enhanced by the new Government's recent launch of the National Plan to Abolish Forced Labour aimed at amplifying partners, engaging important stakeholders, and defining responsibilities.
