Religions take an important role in denouncing modern slavery, in protecting, rescuing and rehabilitating victims of human trafficking.: Religious Leaders (“Joint Declaration of Religious Leaders Against Modern Slavery”, Rome, 2 December 2014) and religious congregations take a large part in the fight against modern slavery. This webinar will present:
- the “Pastoral Orientations on Human Trafficking” proposed by Pope Francis and The Migrants & Refugees Section of the Vatican after a consultation with church leaders, academics and practitioners and partner organizations working in this field;
- the assessment of the present situation and proposals of representatives of Christian, Jewish and Muslim faiths in order to promote action at the international, regional and national levels.
