Today, more than 21 million people in the world are the victims of forced labour, most of whom in Asia. This issue has come to the forefront with the 2022 Football World Cup to be held in Qatar Labour rights do exist, but all too rarely are they enforced.
Specialising in the supply chain and labour rights, RHSF (Human Resources Without Borders), in partnership with the NGO Tenaganita, believes that informing workers of their rights is key in tackling this issue Labour rights are inaccessible to workers as they are often illegible or in a language that is foreign to them Drawings are a way to overcome these barriers. They will give us a means to inform and make workers aware of their rights in a concise and instinctive manner You will thereby be able to contribute your artistic talent to the defense of human rights
DRAW ONE OR SEVERAL OF THESE FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS
The right to keep one's identity documents
The right of movement within and outside the company; the right to leave one's employer
The right to sign a contract and to keep a copy. This contract must be identical to the one
signed in the country of origin

The right to equal pay for equal work. The right to equal treatment
