United Nations University Computing and Society (UNU-CS) Principal Research Fellow Hannah Thinyane’s Apprise project has been selected as one of the 30 finalists in the World Justice Challenge, and will be showcased at the World Justice Forum VI in The Hague Netherlands from 29 April–2 May.
The project, launched in 2017 in collaboration with Hong Kong based anti human trafficking NGO The Mekong Club, aims to enhance front-line responders’ (FLRs) screening of workers for indications of labor exploitation and human trafficking.
Apprise uses technology to contribute to the protection of vulnerable populations by proactively screening workers and training FLRs how to detect and respond to cases of human trafficking. The tool also supports workers to raise concerns on illegal, undignified, or exploitative employment practices.
