Thailand: Report assesses business responses to forced labour & exploitation in seafood industry
"Tracking Progress: Assessing Business Responses to Forced Labour and Human Trafficking in the Thai Seafood Industry",
This report provides an independent, field-based assessment of the reforms in the Thai fishing industry, and offers practical recommendations for improvement.
The report is divided into four chapters. The first aggregates data from 28 seafood suppliers, buyers, and retailers to identify prominent private sector responses, areas of good practice, and remaining gaps. The second examines the collective industry response through the Seafood Task Force. The third looks briefly at the government/private sector nexus and the need to institutionalise legal reforms in Thailand. Based on the perspectives of 280 migrant workers, the final chapter looks at what has changed on the ground, where there have been unintended consequences, and where issues impeding decent work persist.
