S&D Workshop: Tackling forced labour in our global supply chains
Far from being a thing of the past, forced labour is still very much a reality. In 2021, 28 million people found themselves in forced labour, 3 million more than in 2016. The Socialists & Democrats in the European Parliament have long been fighting to ban products made with forced labour from entering the EU market. Finally, the Commission has answered our call and proposed a law. Join us to learn about forced labour cases and discuss the future EU law with S&D MEPs, experts and activists, including Adrian Zenz, the academic behind the ‘Xinjiang Police Files’, on China’s abuse of Uighurs.
