WA Migration and Mobilities Update: Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking : A conference bringing together policy makers, academics, industry and community to discuss the latest on modern slavery and human trafficking. Other events...
The critically important and challenging subject of ‘Modern Slavery and Migration’ is the focus of this year’s WA Migration and Mobilities Update, an issue of increasing relevance in Australia to Government and key community interests. This fourth annual WA Migration and Mobilities Update provides a forum for debate and discussion about this issue. The programme, organised by the Migration, Mobilities and Belonging (MMoB) research group at UWA with the support of an expanded Steering Committee, reflects key stakeholder voices in this area. The key aim of this Update is to extend our understanding of the specific policy issues and experiences related to migration, modern slavery and forced labour, and to promote and strengthen links between the university, government, nongovernment and community sectors. We actively support rigorous dialogue and exchange about policy and service delivery, and link high-quality research to the debate. To achieve this aim, this year’s program features two panels led by experts – Professor Jennifer Burn and Associate Professor Marie Segrave, whose presentations will provide an update on the latest research on migration and modern slavery. They are supported by panels of the key voices within government, non government and community who are engaged in both policy and service delivery in this field. We are also pleased to offer an additional half day workshop to raise awareness about indicators of modern slavery.
Speaker(s) Professor Jennifer Burn, UTS, Director of Anti-Slavery Australia and Professor Marie Segrave, The Border Crossing Observatory
