Extracts of the first thematic dialogue of Alliance 8.7 Pathfinder Countries

This video presents extracts of the first thematic dialogue of Alliance 8.7 Pathfinder Countries. The online event brought together members of the Alliance to discuss how to accelerate progress towards target 8.7 of the 2030 sustainable development goals. This target seeks to eradicate forced labour, modern slavery, human trafficking, and child labour.

The thematic dialogue, held in May 2022, focused on the topic of recruitment, and what practical measures are taken by governments and social partners to promote fair recruitment in their respective countries.

Promoting fair and ethical recruitment in a digital world

Digital technology platforms are proliferating, particularly as more countries move processes online in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. These platforms, if well-designed and implemented, have the potential to play a key role in supporting fair and ethical recruitment, particularly in promoting institutional transparency, efficiency, reduced cost of recruitment, and government oversight.
