Individuals are compelled to work against their will, often through threats, violence, or other forms of coercion. This can occur in industries such as agriculture, manufacturing, construction, and domestic work.
People are trapped in a cycle of debt they cannot escape, typically through high-interest loans and exploitative repayment terms. Their labour is then used to pay off the debt, which can become intergenerational.
People are transported across borders or within a country's borders through force, fraud, or deception. They are then exploited for various purposes, including forced labour, sexual exploitation, and even organ harvesting.
Children are engaged in work that is harmful to their physical or mental development. They are often subjected to hazardous conditions and deprived of education and a normal childhood.
