May 28, 2009: The question of how to develop effective public-private partnerships has long loomed large in the debate over how to stop human trafficking.

Vital Voices Global Partnership, together with CSR-Asia, End Human Trafficking Now Campaign, Eileen Fisher, Manpower, Microsoft, and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, held a summit in 2007 for business and government leaders to discuss forming exactly these kinds of partnerships.

The summit was designed to offer businesses in the Asia-Pacific region the chance to learn about successful business practices to curb human trafficking, and to facilitate an exchange of views among world political leaders and major international and local organizations working on the issue.

Many valuable insights emerged from the event, and many of those are captured in presentations you can view by clicking here. A second part to the event can be viewed here.
