International Labour Organisation’s omissions
Its report talks about ‘forced marriages’. Its methodology fails to delineate the concept, yielding questionable data.

A few weeks ago, the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and the Walk Free Foundation published a report, in collaboration with International Organisation for Migration. The report is titled, “Global Estimates of Modern Slavery, Forced Labour and Forced Marriage”. If ILO lends its name to a report, it ought to be taken seriously. Ending modern slavery, forced labour and forced marriage are laudable objectives. The report says globally, 40 million suffer from “modern slavery”. Of them, 25 million suffer “forced labour” and 15 million “forced marriage”.
