Slavery Links campaign priority —

Call to recognise the treaty against slavery as one of Australia’s “core” human rights obligations.
Success in this campaign will educate politicians about slavery, each time a new Bill goes through Parliament. Campaign success would also make freedom from slavery eligible for development of a school curriculum; and would bring this freedom into the remit of the Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC).

The business of slavery —

In a global economy, Australia is exposed to slavery through trade, migration and tourism.
It is a crime to reduce a person to slavery, with intent or recklessly. Business and other organisations must develop systems and a culture to keep them free of slavery. Directors and managers can be liable for slavery in their business. Place an order: The Business of Slavery
