MIT-BBC Symposium

Title Details

Running Time
45 Min.


Though many of us would like to think of slavery as a practice of the past, the unfortunate reality is that millions of people are still victims of forced labor, enforced prostitution and human trafficking.

In an effort to shine light on this issue, MIT/'s Program on Human Rights and Justice at the Center for International Studies partners with the BBC World Service Trust an independent BBC charity that promotes development through the innovative use of the media to present a day-long public symposium on the problem of forced labor in the global economy and what can be done about it.

The event coincides with the May 11, 2005 release of a major report by the International Labor Organization. The ILO report provides the first estimates by an international organization of forced labor, globally and regionally, and the first estimate of profits made by those exploiting trafficked workers.

Cosponsored by MIT's Center for International Studies and The MIT Program on Human Rights and Justice. MIT's Center for International Studies is one of the country's leading international affairs research centers. The MIT Program on Human Rights and Justice is the first human rights program with a focus on the human rights aspects of economic, scientific and technological developments.
