Culture / Behaviour change campaigns
This session will discuss cultural and behavioral causes and drivers of, and agents of change to reduce, various forms of child labour and forced labour. The first presentation will describe research conducted to examine the attitudes and practices of people who place children in residential institutions or child domestic work in Haiti, or employ child domestic workers in their homes. The findings are intended to inform a future anti-trafficking behaviour change campaign in Haiti. In the second presentation, participants will learn how to analyze existing client records to build understanding of client needs and vulnerabilities. Discussion will center on how to integrate these findings into actionable items through community-based participatory action research. The third presentation will detail a study that explores the role of social relationships in child labour migration from Karamoja, Uganda. The last presentation will describe research to assess the risk of forced labour and exploitation that migrants and migrant workers face whilst transiting Turkey on their undocumented journeys to Europe. Looking at some of Turkey’s major migration hotspots, this research outlines the drivers of forced labour as either a possible risk or as an unavoidable option for undocumented migrants before, during and after their journey.
