  • The Forced Labour Convention (C29)

    Adopted on 28 June 1930 and entered into force on 1 May 1932

    The Convention was the first international instrument which required the suppression of enforced labour in all its forms. The Forced Labour Convention paved the way for the 1956 Supplementary Convention on the Abolition of Slavery, the Slave Trade, and Institutions and Practices Similar to Slavery.
