"Fighting human trafficking and forced labour - What does Germany need to get done by 2030?”

BMAS/D. Baller

State Secretary Björn Böhning speaks with the participants.

At an event on 23 November 2021 organised by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, experts and important stakeholders discussed which measures are central to the fight against human trafficking and forced labour. The event took place within the framework of the international Alliance 8.7, which is committed to the eradication of child labour by 2025 and the elimination of forced labour by 2030. Germany would like to take on more responsibility in Alliance 8.7.  As a so-called Pathfinder Country it wants to be one of the countries making a special effort towards achieving this goal nationally and internationally. State Secretary Björn Böhning made the following statement: 

Modern slavery can be found today even in the middle of Europe, even in the middle of Germany. Even in Germany, the victims are still not recognised often enough and too often the perpetrators go unreported. We may not avert our eyes from this. We must take action now. 

The stakeholders will summarise the measures presented at the workshop as the most important and urgent challenges in combating labour exploitation, human trafficking and forced labour in a call to action in order to get Germany’s new Federal Government started with proposals for concrete improvements.
