Forced Labour

New Protocol adopted to eliminate contemporary forms of slavery

A new legally binding Protocol aimed at strengthening global efforts to combat forced labour was largely adopted by government, employer and worker delegates to the International Labour Conference (ILC). "This is truly a historic moment because delegates in this room have now modernized effectively Convention 29, which was adopted 84 years ago. We have much stronger measures now to protect the victims and to prevent Forced Labour", said Beate Andrees, Head of the ILO Special Action Programme to Combat Forced Labour.
