To commemorate the World Day Against Trafficking in Persons, the ILO is organising a webinar to launch the new toolkit for journalists Reporting on Forced Labour and Fair Recruitment.

The ILO has developed this toolkit in a collaborative effort with contributions from professional journalists, communication professionals and topic experts.  It has been pilot tested through media training workshops in a number of countries in all regions of the world.  The toolkit is now available in EnglishFrenchSpanish (draft version) and Arabic. It has been adapted to the national context in Nepal and Sri Lanka.

This week, the ILO will carry out a social media campaign to raise awareness of the tool and the importance of supporting quality reporting on forced labour and fair recruitment in achieving Target 8.7. This will include video messages from journalists from all regions of the world as well as celebrities and other supporters of quality media reporting on these topics. Please support the campaign by following @ILO on Twitter and retweeting campaign messages.
