While human trafficking has received considerable media attention in the past few years, it is often portrayed from the viewpoint of activists, policy makers, or humanitarian organizations. This panel will focus on how to tackle the complicated issue of human trafficking and forced labor from the business side. Panelists will discuss the economics of human trafficking in terms of effective strategies from a business lens to combat this egregious human rights abuse. The panelists will also examine human trafficking from a global supply chain certification and management perspective. Specifically, this panel will analyze the role certification has played to end child labor in the carpet industry.
