A Discussion on the ILO’s New Global Estimates of Modern Slavery Report
NOTE: In-person attendance at this event will be limited to 50 people. If in-person seating is still available, you will have the option to indicate whether you intend to attend virtually or in-person on the registration form.
Please join us for a moderated discussion at the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) on the new Global Estimates on Modern Slavery report, which is a collaboration by the International Labour Organization (ILO), the International Organization of Migration (IOM) and Walk Free.
The report, released every 4-5 years, delves into the global manifestation of modern slavery, looks at how the situation has evolved, and what remains to be done if we are to meet our collective goal to end forced labor, modern slavery, and human trafficking by 2030, and to end child labor by 2025.
Discussing the findings of the report and its implications for U.S. policy will be Thea Lee, Deputy Undersecretary for International Affairs at the U.S. Department of Labor and Kevin Cassidy, Director of the ILO Office for the United States and Representative to the Bretton Woods and Multilateral Organizations, with additional panelists to be announced. Marti Flacks, CSIS Human Rights Initiative Director & Khosravi Chair in Principled Internationalism, will moderate.
