Modern-Day Slavery in Focus

The Guardian has launched a website, Modern-Day Slavery in Focus, dedicated to exposing modern-day slavery.  The Guardian is committed to promoting social justice around the world, and to using its journalism and its platforms to expose and oppose oppression wherever it exists. There can be few more striking examples of oppression than the phenomenon of modern-day slavery.

Over the next twelve months, the Guardian, in partnership with Humanity United, a US-based foundation dedicated to building peace and advancing freedom, will shine a light on the phenomenon of modern-day slavery.  Its intention is to create a global forum that investigates both the root causes and potential solutions to modern slavery, elevates global public dialogue, builds alliances on the front lines, and spurs the public, policymakers and corporate leaders to action.
