2018 Agenda

Day 1: Fighting Modern Slavery

  • Keynotes
  • Learning from survivors of modern slaveryA first-hand account of the unique challenges faced by survivors. This session features powerful personal stories and looks at the lessons that can be drawn from those who have been deprived of their freedom.
  • The role of business in eradicating forced labourHear from corporations and investors taking bold steps towards cleaning their supply chains of forced labour. Find out which measures have proved successful - and the most challenging - in supply chain management.

Day 2: Defending Human Rights

  • Keynotes
  • Migration and modern slaveryWith a record 68.5 million people displaced in 2017 - more than any other time in history - we examine the link between this unprecedented migration crisis and modern slavery.
  • Violence against womenFrom domestic abuse to gender-biased sex selection and sexual harassment, we look at the key issue of violence against women and the challenges faced in combatting it.
  • Land and property rights We explore the correlation between lack of land and property rights and poverty, with a particular focus on women, who own only 20% of the world’s land. The session looks at how land tenure can effectively be used to reduce poverty and conflict, boost economies and empower entire communities.
