About

Under this thematic focus, members will explore challenges and opportunities related to media reporting on fair recruitment and forced labour. The Knowledge Hub will provide information and advice to media professionals on how to report accurately and effectively on these topics. The ILO and its partners have been engaging with the media to support the production of quality reporting on forced labour and fair recruitment issues, creating or strengthening networks of specialized journalists, as well as building partnerships with those institutions who have the capacity and mandate to take forward media training and outreach.

Objectives

Members will have access to media tools and resources that aims at combatting the toxicity of the debate on forced labour and recruitment in both origin and destination countries as well as at the global level; fostering the prevention of deception through the promotion of transparent, documented and ethical journalism on these issues.Members will have access to media tools and resources that aims at combatting the toxicity of the debate on forced labour and recruitment in both origin and destination countries as well as at the global level; fostering the prevention of deception through the promotion of transparent, documented and ethical journalism on these issues.
