Alternative Student Assessment
The following assessment allows students to think creatively about the role of business in addressing human trafficking.
You are the CEO of a global company headquartered in Germany. You have recently discovered that a number of your operations in Africa and South Asia have utilised trafficked workers. To what extent do you believe you have a legal duty to do something about this and what would your strategy be to resolve the issue?
