This casebook is a training manual for judges, prosecutors and legal practitioners. It covers a range of national experience, from judicial decisions on forced and bonded labour in a number of developing countries, through to the more recent decisions on forced labour and trafficking in industrialized countries. In particular, it seeks to illustrate how national court decisions have taken into account the provisions of the ILO's own Conventions on forced labour, and how this may provide useful guidance for future court decisions. By increasing familiarization with and awareness of jurisprudence on forced labour, we hope also to promote cross-fertilization of experience and dialogue among judicial practitioners, both within domestic courts and between domestic and international courts. To enrich future editions of this casebook, the first of its kind, we also urge readers to share copies of court decisions involving forced labour.
