The Vulnerability to Child Labor and Forced Labor project focuses on awareness-raising interventions that may lead to a reduction in the worst forms of child labor, forced labor, and human trafficking (CFT). Very little is known about the impacts of awareness-raising efforts on knowledge, attitudes, behaviors, and practices (KABP) to reduce the incidence of CFT. We seek to contribute work to address this empirical research gap through this project. To that end, the primary outputs of interests from the set of evaluated mass media campaigns are as follows: (1) Output 1: Decreasing vulnerability to CFT among the general population in Nepal; (2) Output 2: Increasing awareness around CFT among law enforcement officers in Nepal; and (3) Output 3: Decreasing vulnerability to CFT among the general population in China.
The project is funded by the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of International Labor Affairs Office of Child Labor, Forced Labor and Human Trafficking.
