    The project will lead to the development of a research paper for the Special Rapporteur on Contemporary Forms of Slavery. The paper will a) identify and analyse, from a human rights perspective, emerging factors which push people into contemporary forms of slavery and b) lay out possible policy responses which will effectively address and mitigate “tomorrow’s slavery”, including by implementing SDG target 8.7. The opportunities provided by innovative (tech) tools and approaches as well as potential risks associated with them shall equally be analysed in the research paper.
