Social Determinants of Vulnerability to Labour Exploitation and Modern Slavery in Rio de Janeiro: The case of Morro da Providencia

Report

English

This report stresses an intersectional analysis to explore the social determinants of vulnerability to labour exploitation and modern slavery in the city and urban sites. Gender, race, state, migration, stigma, work, poverty and COVID 19 alone may not say much but combined with the voice of all stakeholders, including the favelados, open venues to urgent changes.

It also, albeit modestly, aimed to arouse the interest of academic researchers and “cariocas” to the main characteristics of this city and peoples, transforming what was historically considered a problem to, in contrast, a solution.
