FORCED LABOUR

banksy-slave-labour

There are an estimated 27,000 million people living in various conditions of forced labour today – more than at any other time in history.
 
The session starts with a flying, animated tour through slavery and the anti-slavery movement from 7,000 BC – present.  

The session will then examine how slaves / forced labourers have evolved from a relatively scarce resource, legally obtained, to an illegal but easily obtainable resource today.  

Where are they, why do the conditions prevail and what can be done about it?
