Forced labour in Myanmar

The objective is to contribute and support the implementation of the Joint Government of Myanmar and ILO Action Plan to Eliminate Forced Labour by 2015 in line with international standards, in particular the Forced Labour Convention (C.29).

This Joint Action Plan provides a framework for ILO support towards eliminating the systemic use of forced labour in Myanmar.

The strategy is a combination of support to national legal and policy frameworks; capacity building of relevant institutions; awareness raising of rights and responsibilities of target groups; and provision of support services (such as livelihood skills training, community village infrastructure, social and economic reintegration services and legal support) to targeted individuals, including women, children, labour migrants, individuals and households in conflict-affected areas; victims of trafficking and former child soldiers.
  1. ILO Indicators of Forced Labour

    This booklet presents an introduction to the ILO Indicators of Forced Labour. These indicators are intended to help “front-line” criminal law enforcement officials, labour inspectors, trade union officers, NGO workers and others to identify persons who are possibly trapped in a forced labour situation, and who may require urgent assistance. The indicators represent the most common signs or “clues” that point to the possible existence of a forced labour case.

    အဓမၼခိုင္းေစမႈပေပ်ာက္ေရး၊ အဓမၼခိုင္းေစမႈဆိုသည္မွာ အဘယ္နည္း၊ တိုင္ႀကားမႈျပဳလုပ္ရန္ မည္သူ႔ကို ဆက္သြယ္ရမည္နည္း၊ တိုင္ႀကားျခင္းျဖင့္ မည္ကဲ့သို႔ေသာ ရလဒ္မ်ား ေပၚေပါက္လာႏုိင္ပါသနည္း။
