Using Technologies to Fight against Labour Exploitation

This webinar run in collaboration with the UN University's Institute in Macao explores the potential of technologies to uncover patterns of labour exploitation. The most recent estimates find that 24.9 million men, women and children are trapped in situations of labour trafficking around the world - less than 0.4% of these were identified and subsequently helped. This webinar draws from UNU's work in Thailand with NGOs, Royal Thai Navy and the Ministry of Labour in the fishing sector to innovate and invent solutions to support the initial screening phase of labour trafficking victim identification. It presents findings and good practices that can be used to overcome trust and power imbalances that exist in the field. The webinar also discusses the potential for anonymous screening responses to be analysed to contribute to evidence-based action and policy responses.
