Unpacking concepts of freedom and unfreedom in the world of work

A series of special lectures and panel discussions presented by Work in Freedom programme.

There is consensus that the world needs to respond against forced labour, modern slavery and human trafficking. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) refer to eradicating forced labour and ending modern slavery and human trafficking. However, each of these conceptual constructs implies a different way of seeing the world, a different history of understanding and a very different framework of action.

The Work in Freedom project is organizing a series of conversations meant to deconstruct the meaning of various terms related to freedom and unfreedom in the world of work. This is important to reframe policy responses to these issues from more enabling schools of thought.

First lecture
The first lecture in the series is on the centrality of debt bondage in relation to unfree labour and our honoured guest is Michael Hudson: President of The Institute for the Study of Long-Term Economic Trends (ISLET), a Wall Street Financial Analyst, Distinguished Research Professor of Economics at the University of Missouri, Kansas City.

Join us on March 25, 2022 at 9 am EST on Zoom for the lecture.
