Trafficking

The Lab, organized by the Global Leadership Academy (GLAC) and the Thomson Reuters Foundation, is designed to create a global network to increase awareness of and publicity on trafficking, particularly of women and children, foster exchange and dialogue among the various stakeholders and develop innovative strategies and projects in the stakeholders’ institutions or countries that can bring about positive transformation in their home context and on the global level.

For the first part of the Lab, experts on the issue gathered in Nairobi, Kenya from 25 to 28 June 2018. GDL member Eirliani Abdul Rahman, who attended the event, shared her experiences in a blog worth reading.
The second part of the Lab will take place in London, the United Kingdom from 10 to 13 November 2018.
