1. Background

Modern slavery is an ongoing issue worldwide. Modern Slavery is a crime and violation of human rights and is defined under the Australian Modern Slavery Act 2018 (the Act) as including eight types of serious exploitation: Some forms of modern slavery include:

  • Forced labour any work or services which people are forced to do against their will under the threat of some form punishment.
  • Debt bondage work to pay off the debt, then losing control over the conditions of both their employment and the debt.
  • Human trafficking involved people being transported into a situation of exploitation through the use of violence, deception or coercion. Purpose of exploitation can range from forced prostitution and forced labour to forced marriage and forced organ removal.
  • Decent-based slavery- a mother in slavery is automatically enslaved too.
  • Child slavery defined as the delivery of a child by its parents or a guardian to someone else for the purpose of exploitation. Child slavery can include child trafficking, child soldiers, child marriage and child domestic slavery.
  • Forced marriage when someone is married against their will and cannot
    leave the marriage. Most child marriages can be considered slavery.
