About this Event:
Is slavery confined to the past? Sadly not. Instances of grave labour exploitation exist in present-day Europe and elsewhere. This lecture discussed abuses of labour conditions suffered by domestic workers, victims of trafficking and others. It explained why their situation is akin to slavery, and set out the steps that have been taken in law to protect the human rights of these workers.
