This course covers how companies can increase their Environmental, Social and Governance by addressing Human Trafficking risks, through due diligence and beyond.

The UN Convention against transnational organized crime and its dedicated protocole provide a universal definition of Human Trafficking, which encompasses sexual and labor exploitation. While States parties have the obligation to tackle this crime and provide assistance to victims, the International community calls for more efficient responses to address the demand that fosters such forms of exploitation.

In more and more countries, a duty of diligence compels major companies to identify, prevent and end or mitigate the negative impact of their activities on Human Rights and the environnement. Beyond such mandatory approach, companies can adopt a wide range of measures to increase their Environmental, Social and Governance, by actively contributing to prevent, detect and combat Human Trafficking, with particular attention to the protection of victims.

As an introduction to the subject, the course will provide an overview of the global framework and trends of Human Trafficking. Participants will explore actions to adress related risks in companies.
