About the Speech:

Modern Day Slavery - Modern Day Approaches

This presentation will introduce one of the fastest growing scourges affecting the globe today – human trafficking and forced labour. Conservatively estimated to currently enslave over 30 million people around the globe and generate USD$150 Billion a year for organized crime, it is widely acknowledged that current efforts are losing pace with the growth of human slavery.

Liberty Asia (www.libertyasia.org ) is made up of a group of dedicated professionals from different industries who feel strongly that a more effective, coordinated response to slavery is essential and that leveraging technology available to the corporate sector and providing it to the NGO sector will facilitate this response. Liberty Asia’s goal is to provide new solutions to change the way slavery and trafficking is addressed; at the heart of this is the role of intelligence.
