Modern Slavery in India
Franciscans International Report
Franciscans International(FI) is an international non-government organisation working on human rights, the environment and peace-building. Since the 1980’s FI has been working on raising awareness about the issue of Trafficking in Person and other Contemporary Forms of Slavery which include forced and bonded labour. In 2012 FI produced a publication which focuses on contemporary forms of slavery in India. While the document outlines the concepts of contemporary forms of slavery, trafficking in persona, forced labour and bonded labour, it also outlines cases of bonded labour and of child labour informed by the daily experiences of Franciscans working on the ground in India. It also proposes suggestions for effective advocacy work. Download a copy of the document here.
