Hosted by the Geneva Center for Business and Human Rights and the Geneva Academy of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights.
There are nearly 25 million people trapped in forced labour around the world and 16 million are exploited in the private economy. These are workers at the bottom of global supply chains- producing the coffee, chocolate, computers, jewellery, car parts - that are part of our daily lives.
This expert panel will discuss business strategies to identify, analyze and resolve risks for modern slavery in global supply chains.
The expert panel will be moderated by Professor Dorothée Baumann-Pauly and will include Professor Justine Nolan (UNSW Australia), Cindy Berman (Ethical Trading Initiative), Auret van Heerden (NYU Stern Center for Business and Human Rights) and Luiz Antonio Machado (International Labour Organization).
We are also launching Justine Nolan and Martijn Boersma’s new book Addressing Modern Slavery (2019).November 21, 2019
