Abstract

This brief reflection paper presents a case study of a life skills training program for survivors of human trafficking in the Philippines. Trauma-informed principles and Motivational Interviewing guide the development and implementation of this life skills development program to support survivors in achieving their educational and career goals. This article details the curriculum adaptation process, guiding frameworks, curriculum design, and recommendations for strengthening life skills programming for human trafficking survivors. The experiences of practitioners detailed in this paper are instructive for other stakeholders in the anti-human trafficking movement planning to implement life skills programming with survivors.

The Journal of Modern Slavery and its mother organization, SlaveFree Today, are launching a new blog platform. The blog will feature a multitude of perspectives on current and emerging actions and ideas from around the world to tackle and eliminate modern slavery and related exploitative practices in accordance with SDG 8.7. In the long term, the blog will be a platform that invites new and young voices to participate in the conversation. However, short term, the blog will be a platform that takes a deeper look at the impact of COVID-19 and its repercussion on modern slavery, human trafficking, forced labour, and child labour (SDG 8.7)

CALL for PAPERS, APRIL 2021

Child Labour Edition

Guest Editors
Urmila Bhoola & Cindy Berman

This edition seeks to explore the degree of progress and success there has been in tackling systemic and complex issues of child labour. Child labour – especially in its worst forms – is most often evident at the intersection between high levels of poverty, discrimination & exclusion, lack of social protection, lack of access to affordable, quality education, failures in labour rights protection & monitoring by states, impunity & lack of accountability of the private sector and high degrees of labour market flexibility.
