With covid-19 having a devastating impact on vulnerable communities, gathering data and evidence from slavery-prone communities is critical in ensuring an effective response - it is also very difficult to produce.
To explore the ethical dilemmas and the shifts in how research is being done under the shadows of the coronavirus, the Freedom Fund is hosting a webinar with two experts who have been studying and highlighting the acute needs of marginalised groups in India and Ethiopia.
Now more than ever, we believe that the voices of vulnerable people need to be amplified for shaping policy and programmatic responses. We also need to rebuild our economy and society in a way that protects survivors of slavery from becoming re-victimised and prevents marginalised groups from falling into exploitation.
Join us in discussing how research is being conducted and harnessed during the crisis. The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A session.
