2018 Global Forum

The 2018 Freedom from Slavery Forum took place in Bangkok, Thailand from December 3-5, 2018. This iteration of the Forum, the sixth annual, built off the work and goals of years past by bringing leaders from the anti-slavery field together to coalesce, create partnerships, discuss promising practices, and develop a shared agenda for action. Each year, Forum participants build relationships and prioritize actions in areas such as advocacy, measurement, and survivor care, among other themes. Accordingly, the 2018 Forum was a three day event organized by an Advisory Committee of leaders from the anti-slavery field. Building off feedback from participants of the 2017 Forum, the Committee identified three primary themes to prioritize for the 2018 iteration:

  • Day One: Learning from One Another
  • Day Two: Advocacy and NGO Collaboration
  • Day Three: Achieving Scale as a Movement
