An estimated 45.8 million people live in modern slavery. The International Labour Organization estimates that global profits from forced labour surpass US$150 billion per annum, suggesting that slavery, forced labour and human trafficking are more profitable than the global arms trade. Today, non-state armed groups like Da’esh/Islamic State and Boko Haram actively promote slavery both as a means to finance themselves and as a method of war.

The report “Fighting Human Trafficking in Conflict: 10 Ideas for Action by the United Nations Security Council” reviews the tools available to the UN Security Council and member states and provides concrete steps for the UN Security Council and its partners to take to sever the link between conflict and slavery.

This video accompanies the report which distills insights from a two-day workshop organised by the United Nations University with the support of the Permanent Missions of the United Kingdom and of Liechtenstein to the United Nations, Thomson Reuters and the Grace Farms Foundation. The workshop brought together some 110 participants from permanent missions to the United Nations, UN entities, national law enforcement agencies, financial intelligence units, the technology sector, the financial sector, media, and civil society.
