21 million trapped in modern slavery

Modern slavery, forced labour, still traps more than 20 million people around the world in different forms including debt bondage, forced begging, or trafficking. According to Beate Andrees, Head of the ILO's Special Action Programme to Combat Forced Labour, one of the main problems in the fight against modern slavery is how to identify victims of this crime. The ILO plays a key role in training institutions to take legislative action that enable societies to implement and enforce laws that make modern slavery a crime.
