Invitation Tuesday June 22 Webinar: “MODERN SLAVERY AND DECENT WORK”





Join us for a better understanding of the growing phenomenon of modern slavery, through the intersecting perspectives of an economist, a victim assistance expert and a supply chain specialist, a representative of the Vatican’s Migrants & Refugees — Integral Human Development section, and a psychologist specializing in migrant labor in a hyper-competitive economy that all too often functions with underpaid jobs. As our previous seminars have demonstrated, a new approach based on the demand for goods and services related to human trafficking should be developed by all actors, governments, to reduce and eradicate modern slavery.
