TODAY Webinar: The Exploitation of Uyghur Forced Labour in China | 19.05, 11.30 a.m. (CET)

Dear friends, dear colleagues,

I would like to invite you to a webinar

on Tuesday, 19 May, 11.30 a.m. (Brussels time)

with Vicky Xu, Kelsey Munro & Dr. James Leibold 

from the Australian Security Policy Institute (ASPI).

Vicky Xu and her colleagues from ASPI in February 2020 published a study with detailed analysis of the exploitation of Uyghur forced labour in different cities and regions of China. ASPI came to the conclusion that more than 80 well known global brands and labels benefit from this practice of forced labour in their Chinese supply chains. This includes major tech, automotive and fashion companies from around the world including from nine European countries.

You can find the report HERE and an op-ed in the Washington Post by the authors HERE.

We would like to discuss with the authors about their methodology and the reaction to their findings.

If you would like to join for this 90 minutes webinar, please register HERE.


Best regards and stay safe
