Briefing note | 26 August 2020
There is significant interest among donors, international organizations, labour departments, worker and employer unions, consumer organizations, corporate brands, multi-stakeholder compliance organizations, auditors and other civil actors in prevention laws, policies and practices addressing forced labour and human trafficking in garment, textile and footwear industries. This is a list of the nine most common misperceptions among policy makers and stakeholders across supply chains. The policy brief includes related facts and recommended laws, policies and practices drawing on the experience of the Work in Freedom Programme. This should be read together with other another ILO policy brief on anti-trafficking laws, policies and practices.
