Recruited into Slavery: How Unethical Recruiting Puts Migrant Workers at Risk for Trafficking

ICCR white paper, published April 2015.

To learn more about how these violations occur, in September 2014, ICCR’s Associate Program Director for human rights, Valentina Gurney traveled to Thailand where she conducted in-person interviews with migrant  workers, labor brokers and representatives of anti-slavery NGOs working to strengthen worker’s rights and fight slavery and trafficking on the ground. This report memorializes those interviews, provides a deeper
analysis of slavery risks in the Thai seafood sector and provides both questions and recommendations for companies looking to strengthen their recruitment and employment policies.
