The Labour Exploitation Accountability Hub aims to promote accountability for human trafficking, forced labour and slavery, by providing an easily accessible web-based tool that raises awareness of existing mechanisms and provides a platform for further research and advocacy.
The database currently covers 15 countries worldwide. The countries were selected for geographic, political and economic diversity, in order to include a range of issues and approaches. Country selection focussed on those with new or innovative legal initiatives, or with a significant or high-profile history of dealing with exploitation in business supply chains. Countries were also selected in order to reflect a mix of production and consumption along global supply chains, and to link countries where companies operate.
