Human Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery

More people are enslaved today than at any other time in history, yet the general public are mostly unaware of the many ramifications of slavery and human trafficking. We help independent journalists to better understand this important issue, ensuring that best practice and know-how are shared and facilitating outstanding reporting and scaling impact.

According to the Global Slavery Index, 45.8 million people are trapped in some form of slavery today. Journalists around the world play an instrumental role in shedding light over this largely under-reported issue. But in order to do so, they need to better understand the many issues related to this complex crime, so that in turn they can report on this issue accurately and effectively.
We run programmes for media professionals to equip them with the skills they need to investigate and shed light on this growing global industry.
The Thomson Reuters Foundation is at the forefront of the fight against modern slavery. We expose its perpetrators through our award-winning coverage, we give survivors a voice at our annual Trust Conference, we honour corporations for excelling in attempts to eradicate slavery from their supply chains through our Stop Slavery Award, and we conduct legal research and collaborate with top law firms, businesses and NGOs to trigger policy change through our TrustLaw programme.
