Event description

Description

Join Liu Institute Visiting Fellow, Dr. Karen Snyder at her talk about modern slavery.


About her talk:

There are tens of millions of people in slavery today. Slavery generates about US$150 billion for traffickers each year. Ending modern slavery is part of the Sustainable Development Goals. The human trafficking business affects the global economy, national policies, vulnerable communities and resilient survivors. This presentation will describe the scope of the problem around the world and here in Canada. More research and evaluation is needed to understand the impact of anti- prosecution, protection, and prevention interventions. Opportunities and challenges for policies and programs that touch on international development, governance and security, business corporate supply chains, climate change and public health will be discussed.
