Modern Slavery in the Anthropocene

Human Trafficking and Migration Initiative’s 2020 Virtual Summit

All Day
Courtney Hillebrecht,
Dr. Jessica Sparks, Rights Lab Associate Director, Ecosystems and the Environment Program and assistant professor of Antislavery Ecosystems, will present. Modern slavery co-occurs in many of the same geographies disproportionately incurring the effects of climate change and experiencing intense environmental degradation, including environmental crimes. In this video Dr. Sparks will discuss the emerging evidence shifting scholarly understanding beyond mere co-occurrences to patterns of multidirectional and non-linear relationships that suggest a modern slavery, environmental degradation, and climate change nexus. The discussion will conclude with an analysis of key areas for future research to improve understanding of the nexus and potential pathways to action.
