en Identifying and investigating cases of forced labour and trafficking

The ILO defines forced labour as "work or service that is taken from a person under the menace of a penalty and for which the person has not offered themself voluntarily". It involves the exploitation of vulnerable workers for personal or economic gain. Forced labour refers to situations in which persons are coerced to work through the use of violence or intimidation or by more subtle means such as accumulated debt, retention of identity papers or threats of denunciation to immigration authorities. The entry into force of the 2014 Forced Labour Protocol marks the beginning of a new era where global action to combat forced labour is to be accelerated. This crucial milestone comes at a time when extreme labour exploitation is growing around the world. According to the latest ILO estimates there are more than 20 million people in forced labour today. If you encounter forced labour courses in your day to day activities or are required to take measures to address forced labour, this course will provide you with some additional insights on how to better tackle the issue. During this course you will learn more about the different stages of the process of identification and investigation of forced labour cases. You will also have an opportunity to engage with national and international experts to learn more about the different law enforcement initiatives that have proven to be effective in combating forced labour.
