A staggering 50 million people globally are trapped in modern slavery, according to a recent report jointly published by the International Labour Organisation, the International Organisation for Migration, and Walk Free, an anti-trafficking human rights group. A problem that is neither new nor unknown, why have we struggled to clamp down on modern slavery? Are we ready to admit that modern slavery can be found, even here in Malaysia?
We unpack this recent report and the broader issue of modern slavery, especially forced labour, I with Joanne Chua, national programme officer with the International Organization for Migration.
