There is considerable knowledge about, and interventions that target, human trafficking and exploitation for prostitution. In labour trafficking, however, other actors are involved, the victims identified have more often been men, and assistance providers face other challenges than those that are known from trafficking for prostitution. Labour trafficking will also be encountered by other actors, and there is a considerable need for knowledge. This report is an updated summary of the original report Menneskehandel i arbeidslivet” [Labour trafficking”], published in 2019.
This TemaNord report concludes Pillar III on non-standard work under the Fafo-led research program "The Future of Work". With contributions from 18 researchers from all five Nordic countries, the report looks at both traditional forms of non-standard work, such as temporary contracts, part-time and solo self-employed, as well as emerging employment practices such as zero-hour contracts and freelancer companies – all within the context of the Nordic welfare and industrial relations models.
The Nordic 0-24 project has been a collaboration between all the Nordic countries and autonomous areas to improve follow-up of vulnerable children and young people. Fafo has carried out an evaluation of the project. A key point of the evaluation is the importance of putting children and young people at the centre and taking their perspective when creating and developing services, as well in the general follow-up.
The Fafo-led project "The future of work: Opportunities and challenges for the Nordic models" examines a wide range of aspects of how our Nordic societies are prepared for the future. This report seeks to reveal whether there is a need to adapt Nordic labour law to future working relationships, and, if so, how such an adaptation can preserve the purpose and functions of the laws. The report is comissioned by the Nordic Council of Ministers.
