 In 2024-Forced Labour

Topic: 2024-Forced Labour
Country: Poland
Delegate Name: Elena Petros

Forced labor represents an appalling violation of human rights that persists globally despite widespread awareness and condemnation. Poland maintains the steadfast opinion that forced labor, particularly regarding human trafficking, is an issue that needs to be addressed urgently. Forced labor, as stated by the UN, is any or all work or service that is exacted from any person under the threat of a penalty and for which the person has not offered himself or herself voluntarily. Being an acute ongoing matter affecting countless people worldwide, Poland pushes to take immediate action against this immorality.
Recently, as Poland has taken measures to minimize forced labor, we have seen indications that refugees fleeing the Ukraine war are being targeted by traffickers. Forced labor and trafficking is a worldwide crime that requires cooperation and collaboration. Partnering with other countries to share information would help to thoroughly eliminate forced labor and trafficking that crosses borders. For example, joint task forces composed of law enforcement agencies from different countries could significantly strengthen the fight against forced labor.
Awareness and detection continue to be the most pressing concern when it comes to the prevention of forced labor. Labor trafficking is the predominant form of trafficking in Poland, traffickers have begun to use coercion and fraudulence in place of brutality and threats. By educating the public, a proactive, essential approach, the prevention of individuals falling victim to forced labor and human trafficking would decrease as an effective preventive measure. Enhancing recognition devices and advancing law enforcement to combat forced labor and human trafficking specifically, would streamline efforts to annul trafficking networks. Using these preventative measures, Poland hopes to increase the identification and liberation of those affected by forced labor and human trafficking.
