Profits And Poverty: The Economics Of Forced Labour
PDF File Size: 1.21 MB | Download   
This chapter examines the definition of forced labour, and how it may affect estimates of
its extent and the profits generated through exploitation and loss of freedom. It also considers the phrase “modern slavery”, which has emerged as a catch-all for forced labour, human trafficking, forced sexual exploitation and some of the worst forms of child labour. There has been some concern, in both academic and legal circles, that the phrase represents a trend to label certain practices as more extreme than is legally accurate. There is no question that slavery, in all its forms, is unacceptable and must be eradicated. However, not all children exposed to hazardous work are “slaves”, and not all labour that is not compensated with a fair wage is necessarily forced.
