The ILO and Native Labour

  • Antony Alcock


In the eighteenth century the servitude of indigenous populations in Africa, Asia and America was seen as the most logical way to overcome manpower shortages in the quest for the food and raw materials required to feed the Industrial Revolution in Europe. And when servitude did not suffice, or the local population was too bellicose, or the local climate too hard for the white man, other races, most notably the Negro, were transported to make up the deficiency.
