International efforts to eliminate forced labour continue

Today, SOMO (foundation for research into multinational enterprises) and the India Committee Netherlands (ICN) published a report that shows the Sumangali practice – a form of forced labour – is still prevalent in South India.

Fair Wear Foundation has been working on this topic with international organisations, including SOMO and ICN and with local organisations in India.

In support of international efforts to eliminate all forms of forced labour, FWF and its member companies sourcing from South India are publishing a statement today, which can be downloaded here.
