How are new technologies and innovations impacting human trafficking? How can new technologies and innovation address and combat human trafficking? And how does entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial solutions play a role in the fight against human trafficking?
Labour trafficking is the most common form of human trafficking but yet has only more recently been studied to the frequency of other forms of trafficking. With the growing public policy discourse related to the role of business, supply chains, and combating human trafficking, labour trafficking has been highlighted more and more in the media and increasing public awareness. In addition, the global crisis of mass forced migration has put a further spotlight on the exploitation of the most vulnerable.
Empowering local actors to combat human trafficking through digital tools: e.g. safe and anonymous communication system for people at risk and for local actors involved in the fight against human trafficking. The use of simple mobile phone technology can present a great opportunity to establish easy and safe communication between those vulnerable to trafficking and victims with the local agencies who can help them.
