Tackling modern slavery in Australia

The next instalment of the Flinders University Criminology and Criminal Justice Research Colloquium Series will see speakers discuss how modern slavery legislation in Australia fails to adequately achieve justice and the exploitation of migrants in the gig economy in Australia.

Associate Professor Marinella Marmo

Associate Professor Marinella Marmo will present a session on the rise of the humanitarian approach in modern slavery and its impact on cosmopolitan carcerality. Associate Professor Marmo will reflect on the ways in which targeting individual criminals through such legislation has helped companies deflect responsibility.

Mr Elvio Sinopoli

PhD student Elvio Sinopoli will present his research that explores the issues of harm that affect temporary migrant workers, from low payments to severe injuries, particularly among Italian temporary migrants.

The colloquium will run from 11am to noon on Monday 11 October – and you can register for the event here.
