SYMPOSIUM: Symposium 2019 - Perspectives on Modern Slavery
|Symposium 2019 - Perspectives on Modern Slavery : The UWA Modern Slavery Research Cluster is hosting its inaugural symposium, Perspectives on Modern Slavery.
Modern slavery remains one of the largest and most complex human rights issues. Few industries are untouched by it. The shirt on your back, the food you consume, the house you live in: the materials may have passed through the hands of slaves at some point.
The UWA Modern Slavery Research Cluster is offering an opportunity for academics, professionals, students and members of the public to learn more about and discuss the pressing issues surrounding modern slavery.
The Perspectives on Modern Slavery Symposium brings together academics from across Australia, the UK, India, and elsewhere, along with industry and government representatives. Topics include:
• Child slavery
• Slavery in Australia
• Forced marriages
• Business operations and supply chains
• The fishing industry
• Slavery in the UK, India, and Africa.
The keynote speaker is Professor Justine Nolan (UNSW), a leading expert on business and human rights.
All are welcome. Tickets are on sale now.
