Event summary

On Thursday 23 June 2016 the Most Reverend and the Right Honourable the Archbishop of Canterbury was the guest of honour at an event hosted and organised by the University of Derby’s International Policing and Justice Institute.

The aim of the event — entitled ‘Action 2030: Ending Modern Slavery Together’ — was to encourage companies from across the East Midlands to pledge their support for the Athens Ethical Principles, which were adopted by the United Nations Global Compact in Athens in 2006. 

2030 is United Nations deadline for the eradication of all forms of human trafficking; it is one of their sustainable development goals and reinforces human trafficking’s status as the second most prolific crime in the world.
