The ILO and its partners have been engaging with the media to support the production of quality reporting on forced labour and fair recruitment issues, creating or strengthening networks of specialized journalists, as well as building partnerships with those institutions who have the capacity and mandate to take forward media training and outreach. These media engagement activities are aimed at:
- Combatting the toxicity of the debate on migration, forced labour and recruitment in both origin and destination countries as well as at the global level;
- Fostering the prevention of deception through the promotion of transparent, documented and ethical journalism on forced labour and fair recruitment issues.
