Author: Alliance for Responsible Mining, Published on: 7 April 2016
“Toolkit to address forced labor in artisanal mining available in three languages”
Forced labour takes many forms and is still common in artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM). This can even happen without people being aware of their own enslavement. Women, children, migrant workers and indigenous people are especially exposed to this risk. The toolkit “Addressing Forced Labor in Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining: A Practitioner’s Toolkit” is designed to help miners, civil society organizations, government agencies and experts identify and deal with forced labour in artisanal and small-scale mining communities…The toolkit that is now available in English, Spanish and French was developed by the Alliance for Responsible Mining (ARM) in collaboration with Solidaridad and with financial support from Humanity United.
