Issara Global Forum 2019

This three-day multi-stakeholder forum convenes leaders and innovators in the field of responsible sourcing to critically analyze current practices and models to address labour exploitation and human trafficking in global supply chains. The Forum aims to build consensus around the most promising and proven approaches that should be promoted, encouraged, and invested in over the next several years.

The 2019 Forum will feature new themes and more leadership from workers:

  • Day 1: Leading with worker voices. Key reflections, priorities, and lessons learned in human rights and responsible sourcing

  • Day 2: Leading with data. Making the business case for human rights in responsible sourcing

  • Day 3: Ethical recruitment in global supply chains: emerging models and lessons learned


Day 1 key themes are now being determined by workers and trafficking survivors currently engaged in a consultative process - so stay tuned for more details on Day 1, and be prepared for thought-provoking conversations, presentations, and workshops designed for participation by a broad multi-stakeholder group.

Day 2 in the past has been a day of focus on innovation. This November, we will be shifting our innovation energies to a focus on evidence for a business case for ethical sourcing and ethical recruitment. Is there an emerging business case for ethical sourcing? For ethical recruitment? If so, what does the evidence look like, and if not, how should the costs of ethical sourcing and recruitment be distributed?

Day 3 remains focused on the mechanics of ethical recruitment (aka employer pays labour recruitment), and we aim to provide a marketplace-like learning platform for emerging models from different parts of the world. Are you working on ethical recruitment and want to share your model and lessons learned with an engaged, diverse group of business and human rights stakeholders including global brands and retailers, suppliers, recruiters, workers, government representatives, academics, and donors? If so, please reach out to the Issara Global Forum team at globalforum@issarainstitute.org.
