Farmworker Protections and Labor Conditions in Brazil’s Coffee Sector

Exploring Isolated Cases of Modern Slavery

This report outlines the findings of more than two years of research by CRS and Repórter Brasil on cases of modern slavery in Brazil's coffee sector. The authors also advance a series of recommendations at the close of this report for policymakers, private-sector leaders, and consumers in order to more effectively contribute to the definitive eradication of slave labor. To see how CRS and its local partners respond to issues of slave labor in Brazil, see this 5-minute video (Portuguese with English subtitles).
