Modern Slavery

What is Modern Slavery?

Slavery is not a historical issue. Modern slavery can take many different forms and refers to instances of human exploitation where the victim cannot refuse or leave because of threats, violence, deception, abuse of power or other forms of coercion.
The 2021 global estimates of modern slavery include people who are in either forced labour or forced marriage instances. Staggeringly, on any given day 49.6 million people are in modern slavery. Forced marriages take place in every region of the world. Nearly two-thirds of all forced marriages are in Asia and the Pacific. No region of the world is spared from forced labour, which is a concern regardless of a country’s wealth. Forced labour touches virtually all parts of the private economy and in this sector victimises predominantly women. 3.3 million children are in situations of forced labour with over half in commercial sexual exploitation and others found in domestic work, agriculture, and manufacturing.

The Modern Slavery Act in Practice – strategies & processes for action. This half-day workshop from 29 Aug 2019 in collaboration with GHD and ISCA showcased how leaders in the sector were preparing for the requirements of the Act and implementing change throughout their supply chain for greater transparency as well as raising awareness of human rights and modern slavery issues. Through case studies, a panel discussion and peer-to-peer learning participants dived into the strategies, processes and actions required to shift practices to a new level, towards the eradication of modern slavery up and down our supply chains. The event aimed to provide a greater understanding of the new modern slavery legislation, what it means for the Australian Government, business and industry.
