UK signs up to Forced Labour Protocol

After pressure from civil society groups, the United Kingdom has become the third country, after Niger and Norway, to ratify the 2014 Protocol to the Forced Labour Convention (better known as C29).

This means that the UK has acknowledged the importance of strong international standards which will encourage other countries to join the fight to end modern slavery. This Protocol was created last year to update Convention 29, which was drafted in 1930, so that it is equipped to address modern slavery today.

Through our collective voice, we can ensure that protection measures to end forced labour are up to date in every country in the world.
