Event:

Combating human trafficking: business and human rights (WP1270)

Image: jankie

We were delighted to have Hugo Swire, Minister of State, as the keynote speaker at our one day, roundtable discussion in association with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. We brought together a broad spectrum of actors to consider the most effective ways of combating human trafficking in the business supply chain, both internationally and in the UK.

The meeting provided a forum to:

  • raise awareness of human trafficking and labour exploitation in the context of business
  • facilitate the sharing of good practice, drawing on existing strategies, in particular the UN (Ruggie) Guiding Principles on business and human rights
  • consider practical ways forward in order to tackle human trafficking
  • encourage greater dialogue and collaboration between actors
  • develop and promote new networks towards future cooperation
