Forced Labour

Displaced people are often stranded in legal limbo resulting in economic destitution. This renders them vulnerable to forced labour, servitude, slavery and even human trafficking for work in sex, agriculture, construction, domestic industries.

Vulnerability to recruitment into exploitation, trafficking, and forced laber is gendered. For example, women and girls tend to be trafficked for exploitation in the sex industry, in domestic work or in the care sector, men and boys tend to be exploited in agriculture, construction, mining, forestry and on fishing fleets.

There is no one type of victim. Furthermore, people may be reluctant to readily identify as victims. This does not mean that forced labour is not happening in your country, or in your region. Whether or not a border is crossed, the coersion and control to exploit a person for profit violates human rights to liberty.
