Home-grown slavery: A focus on BME migrant labour exploitation in UK

"Human Trafficking and labour exploitation is at a record high following the aftermath of Brexit and COVID 19 pandemic. These have ushered in new trends especially in migrant labour exploitation within UK. In 2020, the TUC reported a scandal in Leicester which revealed that a raft of reforms are needed to protect vulnerable workers especially […]

Addressing the Risks of Exploitation for Displaced Ukrainians in the UK

"On the 18th March the Government's Home for Ukraine Scheme opened for visa applications. Under the scheme displaced Ukrainian nationals who have a named sponsor are able to seek refuge in the UK. The Anti-Trafficking sector are concerned about the exploitation and trafficking risks that the scheme presents. This forum will explore issues around unaccompanied […]

End Uyghur Forced Labour Public Event

"On Tuesday, the 10th of May (17h-18h CET), the Coalition to End Forced Labour in the Uyghur Region (www.enduyghurforcedlabour.org) is organising a public event in the European Parliament in Brussels to highlight the state-imposed forced labour faced by the Uyghur population and amplify the voices of the Uyghur community and their experiences in trying to […]

Cambodia’s trafficked brides: The escalating phenomenon of forced marriage

"The number of women travelling from Cambodia to China for forced or arranged marriages has surged since 2016 and experienced a further spike since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many Cambodian women in arranged marriages with Chinese men, whether originally consensual or not, report finding themselves in remote areas and abusive contexts. China’s one-child […]

Home-grown slavery prevention: How do we close the safe routes of slavery?

"Many UK employers do not understand immigration law, immigration status, or immigration documents. Studies carried by Coventry University's Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations (CTPSR) found that 96.1% of employers reported that they lacked confidence in employing migrants (including refugees) from outside the EU as they had not received training on the validity of […]

MENTACIDE: The Mental Effects of Slavery and Racism

"Join us Sunday, May 15 , for "Mentacide: The Mental Effects of Slavery and Racism" an online presentation discussing the psychological impact of slavery and racism on Black people in America. A traumatic event can lead to mental health issues such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, alcohol and drug use, as well as […]

Corporate due diligence in conflict

"This session will bring together business and human rights experts from Ukraine, Myanmar, and Palestine, to discuss the specifics of what human rights and environmental due diligence can – and ought to – look like in scenarios of conflict. The discussion will also take into consideration the existence of non-binding international guidance on due diligence […]

Climate change, migration and vulnerability to trafficking

"Join for a webinar to discuss a new, groundbreaking report that details the extent and impact of climate change on distress migration and human trafficking. Climate change is increasing in frequency and intensity adding pressure to an already stressed system, placing the most vulnerable countries and communities at even greater risk of harm. Faced with […]

ONLINE RALLY: End The Hostile Environment!

"We have had enough. The Nationality and Borders Act is just the latest cruel expansion of the Hostile Environment. This month marks ten years since the Hostile Environment was embedded into policy, building on a colonial legacy of state racism to criminalise migrants and deny us our dignity and freedom. But the state’s legacy of […]

Determinants of Anti-Trafficking Efforts

"This event is the culmination of a two and a half year research project undertaken at BIICL, which analysed the determinants of anti-trafficking efforts. Determinants are understood as factors shaping governments' anti-trafficking efforts and influencing compliance with - and implementation of - international standards. They include international and domestic law including case law, external monitoring […]

Moment of Truth: How a new EU law could protect people and the planet

"This year the European Union published its draft of a potentially ground-breaking law that could oblige companies operating in the EU to take responsibility for human rights and environmental harms in their global value chains. This framework for due diligence – officially called the EU Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive – has the potential to […]

Free screening “Mediterraneo”

"Autumn 2015. Two Spanish lifeguards, Oscar and Gerard, travel to the Greek island of Lesbos after seeing the heart-wrenching photograph of a little boy drowned in the Mediterranean Sea. They arrive to discover a shocking reality: thousands of people risking their lives every day by trying to cross the sea in the most precarious of […]
