Liberty Shared
Liberty Shared aims to prevent human trafficking.

Liberty Shared aims to prevent human trafficking through: strategic research; capture and application of information and data; legal advocacy; technological interventions; and strategic collaborations with NGOs, corporations, and financial institutions.

Liberty Shared is using its systemic approach to combat slavery and environmental crimes in the fishing industry. This is done by: using research of industry structure and dynamics and the support of the financial sector; sharing key counter-trafficking data and best practices with strategic partners and industry; championing legal and regulatory developments that obligate industry responses to receipt of new information, and improving the understanding of victim identification and protection; creating slavery education and awareness programs to enact change; and collaboration with database providers in the financial sector to share relevant information.

Version 2 of the Seafood Slavery Risk Tool, a web-based tool to help businesses assess the potential risk of forced labour, human trafficking, and hazardous child labour in fisheries is being developed by the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Liberty Shared and the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership.

Significance for seafood businesses: 

Not seafood-specific. There are a number of organisations that offer practical business support to help manage socially responsible business practices. There are also various tools and guidance notes available which are free to use which will help buyers manage their supply chain and make a more informed judgement on the risks they face when sourcing seafood.
