Nesrien Hamid  | Progamme Officer - Delta 8.7

In its latest report—Measurement, Action, Freedom—Minderoo Foundation’s Walk Free Initiative provides a detailed assessment of the action of 183 governments to eradicate modern slavery and achieve Target 8.7 of the Sustainable Development Goals. The report illustrates the present state of government-led anti-slavery initiatives, and points to activities that should be prioritized given the current evidence and knowledge base.

In this Symposium, Delta 8.7 asked Katharine Bryant, Manager of Global Research at Walk Free, to provide an overview of the report’s central findings. To respond, we invited Dr Jan van Dijk from Tilburg University, the United Kingdom’s Office for National Statistics Centre for Crime and Justice, as well as our Programme Manager, Alice Eckstein, to reflect on the report and its most important takeaways.

Delta 8.7 symposia offer experts the opportunity to discuss technical details of their research and receive commentary from the wider research and anti-slavery community. Researchers are then able to give a response to the previous commentaries received. We hope these symposia will spark further conversations and build the dialogue around research and data in the fight to eradicate forced labour, modern slavery, human trafficking and child labour.
