Modern Day Slavery in Supply Chains- Where can Business Start?
20th May 2016
Global supply chains and modern slavery are major themes in the world in 2016 with initiatives that should build in 2017 and 2018 if momentum can be sustained. The ILO, G7, EU, and World Bank all have meetings on this topic this year. At the same time, civil society is stepping up efforts to fight against the root causes and the manifestations of modern slavery, including through strategic litigation – while the UK’s Modern Slavery Act has the potential to spur greater action by business.
