THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2018 – WASHINGTON, D.C.
Join us for our next Human Rights & Business Roundtable meeting which will take place on Thursday, November 15.
Human trafficking and forced labor remain persistent concerns across the globe, with the International Labor Organization estimating in 2016 that nearly 25 million people worldwide are trapped in situations of forced labor. As companies come under increasing scrutiny for their business practices and take steps to improve their due diligence, questions of supply chain management are of critical importance – particularly labor conditions. To what extent are companies accountable for, and able to control, down-stream labor practices? What meaningful steps can be taken improve supply chain management and engage with key actors in origin countries to prevent human trafficking and forced labor?
Drawing on lessons from diverse sectors including garment manufacturing and private security, this Roundtable will explore how governments and companies across a range of sectors are taking steps to drive change and mitigate risks of human trafficking within international supply chains.
