5.4 ACTION AT THE NATIONAL LEVEL

The suppression of slavery must be achieved at the national and local levels for it requires not only measures which are within the jurisdiction of each government, but changes in social practices which are at times profoundly anchored in national history and culture. Such changes cannot be brought about without the committed engagement of local populations. In order to be effective, all policies and projects must be specifically targeted to slavery and bondage. Practical action should address three main target groups: society in general, the slave owners and the children in bondage.

Despite difficulties, communities and countries are making headway. Over the past decade or so, considerable experience in combating bonded child labour has been gained, and lessons learned from the efforts of communities, NGOs and governments.
