A Global Alliance Against Forced Labor

The International Labor Organization (ILO) has issued an update on its four-year-old report on slavery and other types of forced labor. The new report, issued May 2005, takes a longer view on the issue, describing developments in the last four years and looking toward the future. After defining and identifying the scope of the problem, the group evaluates efforts in the past years to stem the incidence of forced labor. An ensuing discussion examines how forced labor has become intertwined into global systems and how the ILO and its member states can work together to develop a solution: "A key message of this Report is that, while the eradication of forced labor is a tremendous challenge to all, it is nonetheless a manageable one." – YaleGlobal
