The Function Room – St Mungo Museum, 2 Castle St, Glasgow

The Institute for Human Rights and Business, Anti-Slavery International and the Scottish Human Rights Commission are organising a conference in Glasgow on 22nd October to look at a range of human rights, forced labour and trafficking  in Scotland, the wider UK and also supply chains globally. In particular we will examine the challenges facing policy makers and companies in undertaking effective due diligence to ensure, not just protection both for their staff and those in their supply chains, but also for their brand reputation and business efficiency.

We have strong support for the event from the Scottish Parliament and Minister Shona Robinson MSP has been invited to attend and make opening remarks. Other key government bodies will also be represented, along with  attendees from civil society including NGO’s and the trade unions.

We are also very keen to include the experience and voice of business in this event and the input of all kinds of business will add greatly to our discussions. Amongst the business initiatives being discussed David Camp, Director of the Association of Labour Providers will make a presentation on Stronger Together a new multi-stakeholder project being developed by ALP to address forced labour and trafficking.

Attendees from all companies are therefore most welcome and we urge you to attend what should be an interesting and informative day. A pdf invitation is attached.

There has been a lot of interest in the event already and attendance is by pre-registration only
