2. Communications and Dissemination. Anne Gregora

Communications and marketing plan in progress. Attendees discussed target audience, key messages for communications and possible contacts. Call to hub members about potential resources to produce tools for the hub. Let us know if you would like to help.

Please use the following JLI AHT Flyer for further member recruitment. Interested people can sign up on the JLI website at

Target audience: Global, national government, hub members, & local faith communities

  • media, Modern Slavery Consortium and Better Care Network, Open Access peer review journals e.g. `Slavery Today’ and ‘Dignity’

Relevant global policies:

  • Call to action against forced labor and trafficking at UNGA
  • Global Compact on Refugees Ch 10
  • SDGs

Key messages and goals:

  • Connecting policy messages with SDGs and Global Compact and sharing resources between hubs
  • facilitate conversations between the faith-based world and the policy-makers to discuss this issue and explore the scope for common ground
  • FBOs training on how to make effective resource cases, making the data more coherent and credible. Is there merit in connecting with that effort or is that already happening?
  • two agendas: support to those engaged in the effort which involves strong stories and ways to address practical obstacles and opportunities. The second is to learn from and assess experience which calls for a hard-nosed assessment of what has been learned and where there are needs to explore how to make efforts work better.
  • key messages relevant to different forms of exploitation
  • outputs could also be tailored for donors, non- academic audiences, older persons and youth (comic strip?)

3. What next planning. Emma Tomalin

  • What types of research questions should we collaborate on next?
  • How are we going to do this? Which funders: academic or foundations?
  • Who do we collaborate with? Christa Crawford has agreed to be the Asia-Pacific the chair and hope to have other regional chairs as well.
  • Exploring ways in which survivors can comment on our findings would be really important to add integrity to the project
