Two new FTS field investigations are now available on our website in both French and English.
The two reports break new ground in understanding the scope and impact of slavery in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Congo’s Mining Slaves provides new evidence of widespread slavery at mining sites in Congo’s South Kivu Province.
Wives in Slavery uncovers the impact of forced-marriage slavery on girls and women in eastern Congo, through the firsthand accounts of forced marriage victims and survivors.
The two reports provide important research findings for those working to improve human rights in eastern Congo’s conflict zone, as well as presenting recommendations to confront and overcome slavery in the DRC.
Both reports are available on the Free the Slaves Congo webpage.
