What do we do?
Our PPE strategy to tackle the roots of vulnerability to Homegrown slavery
Our three strands strategy is based on the ILO protocol on forced labour
we define vulnerability ,from our perspective, in the context of labour rights, as the diminished capacity of our community to anticipate, cope with, resist and recover from the impact of various legislations. The concept of vulnerability is relative and dynamic. Vulnerability is most often associated with poverty, but it can also arise when people are isolated, insecure and defenceless in the face of risk, shock or stress.(IFRC). in order to tackle labour exploitation, we first identify the factors of vulnerability by asking two foundament questions:
- to what threat or hazard are we migrants vulnerable?
- What makes us vulnerable to that threat or hazard?
We aim to identify the factors that determine our level of vulnerability and the extent of our capacity to resist, cope with and recover from it. We are vulnerable to labour exploitation, but what are the root causes of our vulnerability?
