A new report by the United Nations University Institute in Macau (UNUMACAU) and The Mekong Club assesses the utility and impact of new technologies in the identification of individuals vulnerable to forced labour and/or human trafficking. The report draws on three years of research and fieldwork, and the deployment of the mobile application Apprise in Thailand. Apprise, which was developed by UNUMACAU and The Mekong Club, is a smartphone application that assists frontline responders with screening and identifying workers in potentially exploitative situations. The report also includes recommendations to stakeholders on the benefits and risks of technologies, the importance of human-centered design and the necessity of improved data collection and analysis.
