Disability & Modern Slavery
6 June 2023
People with disabilities, particularly those with cognitive disabilities, are at significant risk of human trafficking and other forms of modern slavery. Despite this, the link between disability and modern slavery remains largely unexplored. Our Disability & Modern Slavery webinar investigated the causes and consequences of modern slavery in the context of disability. Focus areas included the reasons why persons with disabilities are at increased risk of modern slavery, the barriers facing organisations seeking to address the problem and the way forward for tackling emerging trends of disability and modern slavery in the Commonwealth.
