please find attached a briefing document produced by UK based Foundation, Hope for Justice 2020, entitled ‘’Covid-19 and potential indications on Human Trafficking and other forms of Modern Slavery Internationally.’’ Imelda has asked that we share this document, it is an important read at this time and worth sharing.
While it should be noted that modern slavery is a complex issue and often these issues are interlinked and affect each other, the attached briefing document covers the following themes:
1. Increased threat and vulnerability of individuals and communities including access to state and non- state support structures/safeguarding mechanisms.
2. Potential impact on the modus operandi of exploiters.
3. Potential impact on the rule of law and law enforcement activities.
4. Potential risks for businesses.
Hope for Justice is an international charity fighting modern slavery and helping its victims by preventing exploitation, rescuing victims, restoring lives and reforming society. Headquartered in Manchester, UK and working across five continents, Hope for Justice’s pioneering anti-trafficking model is scalable, replicable and sustainable.
