Out now: New issue of the Netherlands Quarterly of Human Rights

Cover Netherlands Quarterly of Human Rights (2016/4)

Julia Planitzer publishes in the most recent issue of the Netherlands Quarterly of Human Rights (NQHR) an article on obligatory reporting by corporations and its potential to prevent trafficking in human beings.

This article gives an overview of current legal initiatives for enhanced transparency regulations for corporations and the actions they take against trafficking in human beings (THB). The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act (CTSCA) has an influence on legal initiatives in Europe, in particular in the United Kingdom. The UK’s Modern Slavery Act includes the obligation for corporations to report on actions taken against THB and slavery. This article compares the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act with the UK’s Modern Slavery Act and formulates recommendations for similar legal initiatives in Europe.
