Coordinator: Dr Fiona McGaughey, UWA Modern Slavery Research Cluster
Keynote speaker: Professor Justine Nolan (UNSW)
Held at The University of Western Australia, the symposium brings together academics from across Australia, the UK, India, and elsewhere, along with industry and government representatives.
Although prompted by the introduction of Modern Slavery Acts in the UK in 2015 and Australia in 2018, the symposium is interdisciplinary and includes speakers from law, philosophy, marine conservation, history, and business.
The keynote speaker is Professor Justine Nolan (UNSW), a leading expert on business and human rights, including modern slavery, and co-author of Addressing Modern Slavery (UNSW Press, forthcoming).
