We are pleased to host Senator Bob Corker (R-TN), Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, for a discussion on ending the scourge of modern slavery. The United States, international partners, and the United Nations are waging a multidimensional campaign, which combines efforts to counter illicit and terrorist financing, weapons and narcotics smuggling, and the trade in foreign fighters. The criminal activities which support and facilitate modern slavery make the United States more insecure, undermine the rule of law, and shatter the lives of the individuals and their families caught up in this lethal nexus. Following the conversation with Senator Corker, our expert panel will discuss how these networks interact and will offer pragmatic recommendations to combat modern slavery.
This conversation is made possible by generous support from the Embassy of the Principality of Liechtenstein.
