December 2nd marks the International Day for the Abolition of Slavery, the date of the adoption, by the General Assembly, of the UN Convention for the Suppression of the Traffic in Persons and of the Exploitation of the Prostitution of Others.
According to the International Labour Organisation, more than 40 million people worldwide today are victims of modern slavery. The focus of this day is on eradicating contemporary forms of slavery, such as trafficking in persons, sexual exploitation, the worst forms of child labour, forced marriage, and the forced recruitment of children for use in armed conflict.
To recognise the International Day for the Abolition of Slavery, we’ve chosen our Anti-Slavery module as December’s Module of the Month. As part of our Social & Corporate Responsibility suite, the module explores the origins of slavery and the types of slavery that exist today, as well as considering how to identify victims of slavery and consider some practical checks that can be carried out when employing new staff to help to prevent modern day slavery.
