International Labour Conference, 2 mars 2012, 402 pages

The General Survey of the Committee of Experts on the Application of Conventions and Recommendations reviews application in law and practice of ILO's eight fundamental Conventions.

Since trafficking in persons is closely linked to the imposition of forced or compulsory labour or services, it should be punished as a criminal offence under Article 25 of the Convention. The Committee has noted since its last General Survey that a number of countries have introduced into their national legislation specific provisions aimed at punishing trafficking in persons, either by amending their criminal codes, or by adopting special anti-trafficking laws.
