About Anti-Slavery International

Anti-Slavery International is committed to eliminating all forms of slavery and slavery like practices. It is the world’s oldest international human rights organization and it bases its work on the United Nations treaties against slavery. It works closely with partner organizations from around the world. The organization influences decision-makers and inspires change on a global level, particularly on bonded labor (also known as debt bondage), descent based slavery, forced labor, forced marriage, the worst forms of child labor, the exploitation of migrant workers in conditions amounting to slavery (particularly migrant domestic workers), and human trafficking. The organization has consultative status with the UN Economic and Social Council and observer status at the International Labor Organization.
