Foundation for a Systemic Approach to Modern Slavery​

Dutch mayors and modern slavery
In June, the Dutch Association of Mayors (NGB) organised a conference on human trafficking. Tamme de Leur (SVIAM) and Arjan Zebel (Inspectorate SZW), presented an ongoing case of labour exploitation to the mayors.

For most participants, the case was very recognisable. The disciussion was about what local governments can do from an administrative law and criminal perspective.

Objective

Promoting a multidisciplinary approach between governments, law enforcement agencies, social services and private partners in combatting modern slavery. Our goal is systemic and sustainable change by reinforcing prevention, victim care and investigation through collaboration.

Activities

Our activities include the mobilization of network partners to encourage the exchange knowledge between professionals from all disciplines. Our foundation is striving to develop a quality mark for slavery free communities and we also support organisations in the development of policy through quick scans and training.

Background

The foundation is an initiative of Tamme de Leur, an international expert in fighting modern slavery. He also developed (post)bachelor courses in combatting human trafficking through his team at MetaStory Instituut. However, education is not enough. SVIAM focuses on practical, sustainable and effective cooperation between multi-stakeholders in combatting modern slavery.

Implementation

Plenty of research has been done about the causes, extent and prevention of human trafficking. SVIAM supports network partners with the implementation of the recommendations taken from several reports, as well as the advice of the National Rapporteur.

Tamme de Leur was involved in the analysis of modern slavery in the Netherlands and was consulted by GRETA (Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings) about the current policies against human trafficking in the Netherlands.

Quickscan

SVIAM is developing a quick scan method to provide an insight into effectiveness in combatting human trafficking at a regional level. The scan is based on the Twelve Challenges Framework: a model for an effective and systemic approach against modern slavery from a multi-stakeholder’s perspective.

Annual training day

Training days are organized annually by SVIAM for professionals who participated in the Post-Bachelor Course Combatting Human Trafficking. The aim is to build a sustainable network and discuss case studies in a multidisciplinary setting. Guest speakers are invited to share their experiences in their respective professional fields.
Guest speaker in the past were for example
National Rapporteur Herman Bolhaar, Human Trafficking Investigator Henk Werson and prosecutor Els Martens.

Slavery Free Cities

The University of Nottingham (UK) introduced the concept of Slavery Free Cities. The focus of this concept is fighting modern slavery at a local level by involving the entire community. SVIAM is cooperating with the University of Nottingham to introduce this concept in the Netherlands.

Simulation training course

Tamme de Leur was involved in the international simulation based training course of the OSCE (Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe) in Italy. This is a course for multidisciplinary cooperation in working against human trafficking along migration routes.
This highly effective and impactful course would be of high value for the Netherlands as well. The aim of SVIAM is to introduce a similar training course to the Netherlands.
