What’s Working in the Fight to End Modern Slavery?

Modern Slavery is global business, generating an estimated $150 billion in profits each year. Global partners are trying to combat this illicit industry affecting between 21-36 million individuals worldwide. While the problem seems overwhelming, we need to focus on progress. One successful intervention has been the US National Human Trafficking Hotline. How do they know it’s making a difference? As the UK begins their own hotline and tries to adapt this model, what lessons can be learned when adapting this into a new country? How does legislation affect success? This session identifies how successful interventions can be measured and adapted to further progress toward eradication.
