Reporting on Forced Labor and Fair Recruitment an ILO Toolkit for Journalists

International Labor Organization

This toolkit was developed by the International Labor Organization (ILO).  The ILO is a specialized agency of the United Nations which, since 1919, brings together governments, employers and workers of 187 member States to set labor standards, develop policies and devise programs promoting decent work for all women and men.

The toolkit aims at fostering contributions to the United Nations TOGETHER campaign, promoting respect, safety and dignity for refugees and migrants, and to the 50 for Freedom campaign, which aims to mobilize support for the ratification of the ILO Forced Labor Protocol.

It also aims to further contributions to Alliance 8.7, the global partnership committed to achieving Target 8.7 of the Sustainable Development Goals on eradicating forced labor, modern slavery, human trafficking and child labour around the world.

Many organizations and actors have contributed to this toolkit, including, among others, the International Federation of Journalists, the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) and journalists from many countries around the world.
