HP036 - Reducing modern slavery
Convened by Wendy Olsen (University of Manchester, UK)

The papers in this session explain different types of modern slavery, from child labour to forced and bonded labour, trafficked labour, and entrapped labour (ie coercive conditions in the employment relationship). We invite papers quantifying or documenting modern slavery; comparing child labour across countries; explaining the entrapment of labour in South Asia; exploring harmful forms of labour in Africa; and theorizing modern slavery.
