IFJ-ILO Webinar on reporting migration and forced labour

How to ethically report on migration and forced labour and avoid falling into stereotypes, shallowness and inaccuracies?

While the International Labour Organisations (ILO) estimates there are 169 million migrants work around the world, few enjoy many rights, including in their work places. Abusive working practices are rampant, the lack of information on existing legislation on migration is acute, and the inhuman attitude of some recruitment agencies forces migrant workers to face an often dire reality.  Many continue to face severe inequalities, particularly vulnerable groups. 

Telling those human stories connects journalists to their audience and can have a highly positive impact on their perception of migration.
