Microphone Capacity building to enforce modern slavery laws

While most countries have strong anti-slavery regulations in place, in many cases they lack the ability to use them effectively

Tim Gehring, director of global policy and partnership, International Justice Mission and Ian Welsh discuss why governments worldwide require help to develop the capacity to respond properly to modern slavery and forced labour. They discuss collaboration trends and why too many actors work in parallel rather than combining to tackle slavery issues together. And Gehring outlines what companies can do better to identify their own human rights risks and to help bring modern slavery perpetrators before the courts, while at the same time improving supply chain efficiency.
