Course"Identifying and investigating cases of forced labour and trafficking"

The main objective of the course is to train participants to better identify and investigate cases of forced labour, including trafficking for labour exploitation. The course addresses the different stages of the process (inspecting workplaces, interviewing victims, gathering evidence), with a focus on the private sector (textile, agriculture, domestic work, etc.).

The course is targeted at law enforcement agents, primarily labour inspectors, police officers, prosecutors as well as any other actors who are likely to encounter forced labour in the course of their work: health and safety inspectors, trade union officials, NGOs, and others.

Trainees develop a better understanding of what is forced labour, how to identify it in practice, how to inspect work places and how to investigate cases in order to successfully prosecute offenders. A booklet has been produced to provide law enforcement officers with operational indicators of forced labour.
