Maplecroft webinar series
Human Rights and Business Dilemmas Forum: Human Trafficking and Migrant Workers
Presented by CEO Alyson Warhurst, Director Gus Macfarlane and Analyst Gabriella Sethi, in association with the United National Global Compact (UNGC) and the GE Foundation, this webinar will also feature guest presentations from Professor Kevin Bales, co-Founder of Free the Slaves, Greg Priest, Head of Sustainability Policy and Compliance at Ikea and Justin Dillon, Founder/CEO of Made in a Free World. The webinar will:
Address the issue of how responsible businesses can mitigate the risk of association with human trafficking and exploitation of migrant workers in their operations or supply chains, particularly given the increasing complexity of global supply chains and the prevalence of such issues across various sectors
Examine the situations where migrant workers form a significant part of the workforce and where the government does not provide them with adequate protection. These include violation of international standards, lack of monitoring mechanisms as well as human rights trainings to sensitise relevant state authorities
Explore suggested best practice to help MNCs detect, prevent and take corrective measures against such hidden and insidious forms of exploitation
Debate the manner in which companies have so far addressed this and other challenging issues
