Thank you to those who submitted input for the upcoming report of the UN Special Rapporteur on Contemporary Forms of Slavery.

All submissions (except those that specifically requested non-publication or the removal of identifying information) can now be viewed on the Special Rapporteur’s website here.

4 March 2019

Delta 8.7 is conducting a public consultation to seek inputs to feed into the research and drafting of an upcoming report of the UN Special Rapporteur on Contemporary Forms of Slavery, Ms Urmila Bhoola.

The report will consider how contemporary forms of slavery are changing and being shaped by socioeconomic, environmental and technological dynamics. Based on an understanding of these dynamics, the report will consider whether contemporary anti-slavery efforts are well organized to address tomorrow’s slavery, and what opportunities and challenges there may be for strengthening governments’ and other stakeholders’ response.

We invite all interested parties to submit their views by completing the survey in the box below, at this link or by sending a document of no more than 10 pages to antislavery@unu.edu. Submissions **will** be made public, through posting on this page in PDF format after the submission period closes on Friday, 29 March 2019 at 00.00 EST, unless you specifically request non-publication. All submissions will be used by the research team in preparation of the report and may be referenced or quoted in the final report (with identifying information removed, if necessary).

We thank you for your generosity with your time and insights.
