Senior officials, CEOs and third sector leaders were among the featured speakers at the fifth annual Sedona Forum, held 21-23 April 2017 by the McCain Institute for International Leadership.





Discussions focused on today’s challenges for world leaders, including modern slavery. The Commissioner presented on progress made since the passage of the UK Modern Slavery Act, including enhanced support for victims, further law enforcement tools and compliance with supply chain transparency criteria, and put forward his views on how to increase effective international collaboration to tackle this global crime.





The Commissioner gave insight to the future of the fight against modern slavery, explaining that we must learn from efforts against other organised crime and counter-terrorism, especially as conflict and crises fuel today’s exploitation. The Commissioner called for improved accountability, collaboration, protection and prevention.
