Communication is power: the language used about any issue profoundly affects our understanding of its causes and solutions. How is that power used when it comes to modern slavery?

In July 2020, FLEX hosted an online event to discuss how ‘modern slavery’ is talked about in the media, and how that influences what we understand as its causes and solutions.

Speakers:
Emily Kenway, Focus on Labour Exploitation
Kieran Guilbert, Thomson Reuters Foundation
Sophie Otiende, first Kenyan recipient of a US Trafficking in Persons Report Hero Award
Dr Christiana Gregoriou, Leeds University
Dr Ilse Ras, Leiden University
