General Survey concerning the Forced Labour Convention, 1930 (No. 29), and the Abolition of Forced Labour Convention, 1957 (No. 105): Report of the ILO Committee of Experts on the Application of Conventions and Recommendations (articles 19, 22 and 35 of the Constitution)
The ILO's Committee of Experts regularly reviews progress against key international labour standards. In 2007 the Committee noted that while some improvement had been made on forced labour eradication, such as a reduction in state-imposed forced labour, forced labour regretably continues to exist in a number of countries.
