Microphone Developing capacity for justice systems around the world

How to bring slavery's criminals to account

David Westlake, CEO, International Justice Mission, talks with Innovation Forum founder Toby Webb about the IJM’s work helping deliver justice for the most vulnerable in societies around the world.

They discuss IJM’s work in Thailand where, Westlake argues, there is perfectly adequate legislation but a significant lack of enforcement. The mission has worked with Walmart in particular to counter modern slavery risks in its Thai shrimp supply chains. IJM’s efforts helping police and prosecutors are now leading to convictions of slavery perpetrators and rescue of victims.
