Modern Slavery

LUPC, in collaboration with our partner consortium APUC and the University of Greenwich, has developed an eLearning suite on Protecting Human Rights in the Supply Chain, developed especially for public procurement practitioners.

 

Users will learn why protecting human rights in the supply chain is important to the public sector, how to assess and prioritise risks, monitoring supply chains, responding to abuses and measuring and reporting effectiveness. There’s also a module on compiling your annual Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement under the Modern Slavery Act.

 

The suite was written by Dr Olga Martin-Ortega, Reader in Public International Law and leader of the Business, Human Rights and Environment Research Group at the University of Greenwich and LUPC Director, Andy Davies FCIPS. We thank the University of Greenwich and Advanced Procurement for Universities and Colleges for their kind support in co-funding this project.

 

You can access the eLearning suite, for free, below. Public authorities can also host this eLearning on their Learning Management Systems; to request the files contact enquiries@lupc.ac.uk
