The Freedom Fund has provided a grant to Focus on Labour Exploitation (FLEX) to develop a Labour Exploitation Accountability Hub. The aim of the project is to produce a comprehensive online hub of national laws and regulations on individual and corporate accountability for modern slavery. The project will engage pro-bono legal research services from lawyers in target countries through the Thomson Reuters Foundation’s TrustLaw initiative and will seek the input of experts and relevant bodies through focus group sessions, surveys and interviews.

The Hub will:

  • Complement and enhance existing initiatives and provide the tools for advocating greater government effort in this regard, by delivering easily accessible information on national frameworks for individual and corporate accountability.
  • Provide a basis for accountability actions, by identifying the obligations of governments and corporations, while also providing models for good practice in legislative development.
  • Be unique in its particular focus on corporate accountability mechanisms, including regulatory requirements for preventing, detecting and reporting on modern slavery in supply chains, as well as provisions for civil and criminal corporate liability.
