Enhanced Action against Forced Labour in Asia and the Pacific project (FLARE)
The FLARE project strengthens action against forced labour in the East and South-East Asia, building on the emerging political consensus that forced labour should not be tolerated either in the private economy and global supply chains, or in its more traditional state-imposed forms.

Eliminating forced labour and human trafficking in Nepal
Bonded labour in Nepal is widely regarded as the product of a feudal system wherein people are deprived of their freedom, safety, security and human dignity. An increasing number of Nepalese migrant workers are trafficked for sexual and labour exploitation, either within Nepal or across the border to India and the Middle East. There are no reliable estimates on the scope of the problem but the number of identified victims is increasing.
