The purpose of the report is to provide new information on human trafficking for forced labour; especially regarding the situation of migrant workers, the different mechanisms of recruitment and methods of labour exploitation, the roles of particular stakeholders and possible methods of prevention. There was less emphasis given to human trafficking as such but focus was placed on forced labour as a specific form of “modern day slavery”. The issue was also viewed in the light of two larger social phenomena – that of the economic situation of the particular country and the way the labour market functions in the country. Thanks to this it was possible to contextualize the research findings.
