Asylum, Refugee Resettlement and Modern Slavery Summit, 20 March

The programme for the Asylum, Refugee Resettlement and Modern Slavery is now available from the link below.

Already a large number of people have booked to attend, but places are still available. The Summit will include a presentation from Kevin Hyland OBE, Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner. For more information and to book a place visit here.

This Summit will give delegates the opportunity to:

  • Enable us to learn from innovative and effective practice.
  • Consider local priorities and responses in the future management of these programmes. 
  • Explore the economic and social impact of migration for communities within the region and what does the future hold?
  • Understand local capacity and impact on local government in respect of refugee programmes, economic and social impact and modern slavery.
  • Put into sharp focus the scourge of modern slavery and how local government, statutory and voluntary agencies should respond - according to the International Labour Organisation (ILO), globally there are 21 million people victims of modern slavery.  Estimates suggest there are 13,000 victims of modern slavery in the UK and the number of people identified as slaves continues to increase each year.

Places are limited and EMC need to restrict no more than 2 bookings per organisation.
