The Role of Labour Inspection in Addressing Demand in the Context of Trafficking in Human Beings for Labour Exploitation

The Role of Labour Inspection in Addressing Demand in the Context of Trafficking in Human Beings for Labour Exploitation

This DemandAT Working Paper No. 12 by ICMPD researcher Almut Bachinger and other colleagues in the DemandAT consortium stresses the principle importance of labour inspections in monitoring and addressing labour exploitation, while highlighting that mandates, institutional fragmentation and lack of resources do not necessarily allow to realize labour inspectorate’s potential in addressing exploitation.  In addition, the paper stresses the importance of the overall regulatory environment. An associated policy brief available here summarises key findings of the research and its policy recommendations.
