WHY SLAVERY? discussion on "Deadline"
October 16, 2018
Monday 15th of October, one week after our offical WHY SLAVERY? launch, the issue of modern slavery was discussed in the Danish news program “Deadline”, aired on public broadcaster DR. CEO Mette Hoffmann Meyer was invited to talk about the WHY SLAVERY? Campaign and how documentary films can be used to spread information and create change, alongside senior researcher at the Danish Institute for International Studies, Sine Plambech.
We at THE WHY Foundation are glad to be invited to talk about this pressing issue on national television, and we appreciate the serious attention DR is giving our campaign. We also want to share our admiration for Sine Plambech and her important work to further the academic understanding of these human rights violations, and what can be done about them.
We recommend our Danish speaking audience to watch the program here. The conversation between academia, non-profits and the media is important to reduce the knowledge gap and share information on modern slavery, so that a joint resolution can be found.
