To mark World Fisheries Day, please join us for an online panel discussion on Tuesday 23rd November from 7.30pm to 9pm GMT . In this webinar we will look at the darker side of the maritime world: slavery aboard some fishing vessels, and what is being done about it.
Almost 25 million people globally are victims of forced labour. It isn’t just a problem that is happening ‘somewhere else’; it is on our doorstep and on our tables.
Our expert panel includes Stella Maris chaplains in the UK and abroad, Mark Cam – Lead Investigator from the UK’s Maritime and Coastguard Agency and Jessica Sparks – Assistant Professor of Antislavery Ecosystems. They will explore this issue further and explain how fishers can find themselves trapped in this horrific situation, and what we at Stella Maris and others do to rescue and protect those in danger.
Please register now to join us and find out more about modern slavery in the fishing sector, and what is being done about it.Read more
