The following links can help you navigate the external resources available for businesses and other stakeholders to tackle modern slavery.
Given the wealth of stakeholders and collaborative initiatives developed to aid business in the fight against modern slavery, the United Nations Global Compact, the Global Business Coalition Against Trafficking, and the RESPECT Initiative (comprised of the Global Initiative, Babson College's Initiative on Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery, and IOM) have seen the urgent need to provide a unified resource of information on stakeholders on the front lines of the global fight against human trafficking. It is our contention that the proliferation of organisations working with companies on this critical issue should all flourish - and that the organisations should strive to understand what others are already doing.
The Interactive Map for Business of Anti-Human Trafficking Organisations and the accompanying report is a resource for companies to navigate emerging partners and resources; for all anti-trafficking organisations; and the general public to improve coordination on the eradication of modern slavery, and a baseline from which existing and newly formed initiatives can move forward.
