Forced Labour in North Korean Prison Camps

Forced Labour in North Korean Prison Camps
This report focuses on returned North Korean migrants who are subjected to forced labour in North Korean prison camps following their deportation from China. The findings of the report are based on interviews carried out with North Koreans who were subjected to forced labour while in detention. The report includes photographs and 30 cases. Most of those interviewed were subjected to forced labour before being prosecuted, which violates international standards as well as North Korea’s domestic law. The report also outlines what measures need to be taken to address this situation.

Trafficking in Women, Forced Labour and Domestic Work: in the context of the Middle East and Gulf Region

Trafficking in Women, Forced Labour and Domestic Work: in the context of the Middle East and Gulf Region
Migrant female domestic workers around the world are often vulnerable to serious human rights abuses, because of such factors as their invisibility and the lack of protection and access to public services. The report investigates the experiences of migrant domestic workers in the region, the dynamics and workings of the migration process and how migration (if at all) contributes to trafficking; and looks at what are some of the key inter-connecting dynamics involved between slavery, trafficking, migration and forced labour.
It focuses particularly on several selected sending, receiving and transit countries (Egypt, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Lebanon, Sudan and Yemen).
