Research guide on the private sector and human trafficking

We helped La Strada International and SOMO develop a resource guide on engaging the private sector to end human trafficking. It describes different vulnerable sectors and the role that companies could potentially play in contributing to and preventing human trafficking. In our background research for this guide, we described the regulatory framework regarding the roles and responsibility of the private sector in eradicating human trafficking and forced labour in supply chains. We also made an overview of best practices and the risks for NGOs when engaging with the private sector.
