About the Speech:
In her address to the Institute, Dr. Maria Grazia Giammarinaro discussed anti-trafficking action in the broader perspective of decent work and social justice in a globalised world. She examined the reasons for such a strategic approach and illustrated the policy dilemmas that need to be addressed to achieve meaningful results in the struggle against modern day slavery. She concluded by outlining some ways in which states, international organisations, NGOs, trade unions, businesses as well as ordinary people can contribute to building a cultural environment that is hostile to the exploitation of workers, and ready to react to modern day slavery.
