The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (UN Human Rights) is the leading UN entity on human rights. The United Nations human rights programme aims to ensure that the protection and enjoyment of human rights is a reality in the lives of all people. UN Human Rights also plays a crucial role in safeguarding the integrity of the three interconnected pillars of the United Nations – peace and security, human rights and development.
Article 4 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) states that ‘No one shall be held in slavery or servitude: slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms’.
“An international legally binding Protocol is essential to fight forced labour and hold perpetrators accountable…this new Protocol will assist the more than 20 million people who are victims of forced labour today. These victims include migrants and persons who have been trafficked, including children.”
The Australia Government has a strategy to combat serious forms of exploitation, including human trafficking, slavery, and other slavery-like practices such as servitude and forced labour.
In February 2013, the Australian Parliament passed the “Crimes Legislation Amendment (Slavery, Slavery-like Conditions and People Trafficking) Act 2013” (Slavery Act) which is designed to combat all forms of slavery and servitude.
Dobbie is also proud to support Anti-Slavery Australia, a specialist legal research and policy centre dedicated to the abolition of human trafficking, slavery and slavery-like practices such as forced labour.
