The Abolition of Forced Labour Convention (Convention 105) was adopted by the ILO in Geneva, Switzerland on June 25, 1957. It is one of the two ILO conventions against forced labour, along with Convention 29 which Vietnam joined in 2007.
Convention 105 has ten Articles. The content of the Convention focuses on Article 1 and Article 2; Articles 3 to 10 are procedural rules.
