What does the world of insurance have to do with forced labour, human trafficking and slavery?

On this episode of FAST the Podcast, we start off by putting that question in historical context, speaking to Professor Robin Pearson of the University of Hull about the case of the Zong, an infamous episode of insurance litigation following a massacre of African slaves off Jamaica in 1781.

We hear from Charles Mathias, Chief Risk Officer at Fidelis Insurance, and Jasmine O’Connor, Chief Executive at Anti-Slavery International, who have been collaborating on a new approach to tackling modern slavery risks through insurance.

We also speak to Butch Bacani, Programme Leader at UN Principles for Sustainable Insurance, about where modern slavery risks fit in the larger effort by the industry to grapple with questions of sustainability.
