The Freedom Fund grant will co-fund the Thomson Reuters Foundation to evaluate legal initiatives that could be used to combat modern slavery in India. The Foundation will analyse the legal options and tools available in India to advance the fight against slavery and map the current legal initiatives undertaken by NGOs in India.
With this information, an analysis will be undertaken to identify where and how additional funding could be most effectively invested in supporting legal interventions designed to have the maximum impact in reducing the prevalence of slavery within India. This analysis will contribute towards a report called ‘Putting Justice First’ which will be launched in Mumbai in May 2015.
