Dr Philippa Webb releases report on modern slavery at UN Headquarters

Dr Philippa Webb has launched a report with recommendations to advance efforts to eradicate modern slavery. The report was launched at United Nations Headquarters in New York on 31 January and attended by legal advisers of permanent missions, United Nations officials and civil society representatives. Dr Webb, together with Dr Rosana Garciandia of King’s College London, has been examining potential state responsibility for modern slavery.

The project, in partnership with the United Nations University, has explored a legal framework and a set of cases that focus on the direct or indirect involvement of a state in the commission of offences, ranging from enslavement by state officials to domestic servitude imposed by diplomatic officials (as in the Reyes v Al-Malki case in which Dr Webb was counsel for the intervenor) to the potential funding of slavery-tainted enterprises through export credit agencies.

The launch event can be viewed on UN Web TV.
