Identifying and preventing workforce exploitation in collaboration with Stop the Traffik

The International Fraud Group, a handpicked network of law firms specializing in combatting global fraud, has teamed up with charities STOP THE TRAFFIK and the Traffik Analysis Hub to create this event.

STOP THE TRAFFIK is a charity whose core mission is to disrupt people trafficking across the globe. With its extensive experience of international asset tracing and recovery, the IFG believes its lawyers have a role to play in applying the tools of their trade to this endeavor.

Businesses exploiting trafficked individuals must first be identified. Our collaborative hackathon will use the example of one industry sector in one territory as a testing ground for designs and prototypes that can subsequently be applied across industries and geographies to identify exploitative practices.


Event Timeline:


Risk Analyzer

Sector: Palm Oil 

Data expertise: Traffik Analysis Hub / Open Apparel Register / Diginex (Lumen) / Wikirate / STOP THE TRAFFIK / MDR Lab

Task: Develop a prototype that is capable of reading across company published data and external material and establishing a risk score for a raw materials or manufacturing business that indicates sufficient disparity in both the level and costs of production and a likelihood of exploitation in the workforce.

Output (use any one output while building your solution)

  • A sector and geographic-specific risk profile
  • Financial typologies/profiles for money laundering
  • Trafficking and exploitation patterns from a recruitment perspective
  • A new narrative for due diligence and KYC
  • Focus for audit in supply chains

Outcome: Use any one of the 5 outputs given and your own datasets to build an output. For example, a validation system, dashboard, analytics tool or a risk-generation system, or any other solution which takes specific profile/data as an input and gives a corresponding outcome as an output.

For example, for this output "Trafficking and exploitation patterns from a recruitment perspective", one of the solutions that you can ideate and subsequently build is a system that takes a profile as an input and assigns a probability score to it as an output to show how likely it is that this person was trafficked or exploited. Your output could also include a graphical representation of the data.

Technology Guidance: Preferred programming languages would be Python & JavaScript and the graphic tools would be NodeJS & React plus packages like Elasticsearch & Kibana.
