Matt Friedman believes that slavery is a problem that business can solve; he is an international human trafficking expert with more than 25 years of experience as an activist, program designer, evaluator, and manager. From 2006 to 2012, Friedman was the Regional Project Manager of the United Nations Inter-Agency Project on Human Trafficking (UNIAP) in Thailand, an inter-agency coordinating body that links the United Nations system with governments and civil society groups in China, Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam. Prior to this Friedman worked for the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in Thailand, Bangladesh and Nepal.
Did you know that there are more than 21 million slaves in our world today? Never before in the history of mankind have we tolerated this situation.
