According to the International Labour Organization and other sources, labour exploitation currently makes up the largest percentage of those who are trafficked. Some of the world’s greatest landmarks and feats of agriculture have been built through exploited labour. Today, more than 1000 migrant workers have already died in the preparation of stadiums and venues for the 2018 World Cup.

What is already being done by the construction industry to develop and implement anti-trafficking measures to prevent and prohibit labour trafficking? What can be done in the future? And how can the private sector and anti-trafficking actors work together to create effective interventions in today’s global economy?

The webinar features a panel of experts including:

  • Houtan Homayounpour, Senior Programmeand Operations Officer, Special Action Programme Combatting Forced Labour, International Labour Organization (ILO)
  • Ray Jureidini, PhD, Professor, Migration Ethics and Human Rights Center for Islamic Legislation and Ethics, Hamad Bin Khalifa University, Doha, Qatar
  • Declan Croucher, Director, Verité

As part of the programming of Babson’s Initiative on Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery, we are co-sponsoring this global webinar series with the Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime focused on emerging issues surrounding human trafficking and promising anti-trafficking practices within the private sector. This webinar series is also supported by the Terrorism, Transnational Crime and Corruption Center (TraCCC) at George Mason University and through sponsorship by McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP.

We were live-tweeting the meeting via the @GI_TOC account, with the hashtag: #GITrafficking.
