Cross-Border Investigations: Exposing Human Slavery
9:00 AM - 10:15 AM

Crime & Corruption


Slavery is thought by many to have been banished in an earlier age, but millions of people remain in forced labor around the world. Migrant workers, who account for some 60% of the world’s 244 million international migrants, are particularly susceptible to abuse, as are those trafficked and pressed into prostitution. Here are four journalists on the cutting-edge of reporting on this major human rights issue, with perspectives from Indonesia, Nepal, Taiwan and the US. The group includes AP's Martha Mendoza, who shared a 2016 Pulitzer Prize for helping free 2,000 slaves in Indonesia.
