Deakin Law School presents: Felicity Gerry QC on Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking in Australia

Professor Felicity Gerry QC of Deakin Law School will explore the legal challenges in the corporate reporting of slavery in supply chains and tackling human trafficking in organised crime.

Drawing on her vast experience of leading for the defence in the most serious and complex criminal trials and appeals, particularly those involving trafficked persons who commit crime, Felicity will provide her insight into combating modern slavery and human trafficking in Australia.

This lecture considers how law and policy responds to a range of issues including slavery in multinational food, garment and agricultural industry, sex trafficking, child soldiers and domestic servitude. It is wrongly thought that slavery ended on abolition of the transatlantic slave trade. Nothing could be further from the truth and Australia is a long way from respecting human rights and providing remedies in these contexts.

Please join us for this fascinating presentation or register and we’ll send you a recording after the event.
