Exposing Modern Slavery
Due to Covid-19 restrictions the 2021 ACRATH National Conference was held as an online event over three weeks. The theme for the final session of the Conference was Exposing Modern Slavery – the Lived Experience.
Flinders University PhD student, Alexandra Baxter, shared her PhD research; ‘Slavery and slavery-like practices in South Australia’ and surprised us all with the link found between survivor and perpetrator. Her ability to share the research in an informative and engaging manner makes this presentation a valuable learning opportunity. Watch the video here.
