It is a notoriously difficult crime to investigate, with those responsible becoming rich on the back of the brutality of others. So how can we combat it? Join us to hear from a panel of leading experts - from the media, business, charity and law, to hear stories from the frontline and discuss what more can be done to end this crime.

The crimes may be committed by powerful players thousands of miles away, everywhere from Kazakhstan to the Democratic Republic of Congo.
