HRLC student assistants contribute to UN Special Rapporteur report to the 51st session of the Human Rights Council

This year, the HRLC was pleased to offer internships to work with Professor Tomoya Obokata, UN Special Rapporteur on Contemporary Forms of Slavery, including its causes and consequences.

Professor Obokata has now submitted his report the the 51st Regular Session of the Human Rights Council, taking place from 12 September to 7 October 2022. The report is focused on contemporary forms of slavery affecting persons belonging to ethnic, religious and linguistic minority communities.

We are delighted that students at the HRLC were able to assist Professor Obokata in the production of this report, identifying sources to be incorporated into the final output. The report is now available in all UN official languages and can be found here:
