11:15 AM - 12:00 PM        Press Conference: Fighting Human Trafficking in Conflict by the Permanent Missions of the United Kingdom and of Liechtenstein and the United Nations University (UNU).

12:00 PM - 01:00 PM        Daily Press Briefing by the Spokesperson of the Secretary-General.

01:00 PM - 02:45 PM        (CR.7) Fighting Human Trafficking in Conflict: 10 Ideas for Action by the UN Security Council.
Launch of a new Report from a Workshop organized by United Nations University, Permanent Mission of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to the United Nations, Permanent Mission of Liechtenstein to the United Nations, Thomson Reuters and Grace Farms Foundation.
An estimated 45.8 million people live in modern slavery. The ILO estimates that global profits from forced labour surpass $150 billion per annum, suggesting that slavery, forced labour and human trafficking are more profitable than the global arms trade. Today, non-state armed groups like Da¹esh/Islamic State and Boko Haram actively promote slavery both as a means to finance themselves and as a method of war.
With the UN Security Council about to receive a report from the Secretary-General on Trafficking in Persons in Conflict, there is a unique opening for action on this issue. Some experts point to a need for a ³paradigm shift². They suggest that state-led and criminal justice efforts to tackle human trafficking may require support from the Security Council in order to be effective, using the Council¹s normative, monitoring and sanctions leverage.
A new report, Fighting Human Trafficking in Conflict: 10 Ideas for Action, reviews the tools available to the UN Security Council and member states and suggests 10 Ideas for Action, providing concrete steps for the UN Security Council and its partners to take to sever the link between conflict and slavery.  The report distills insights from a two-day workshop organized by United Nations University with the support of the Permanent Missions of the United Kingdom and of Liechtenstein to the United Nations, Thomson Reuters and the Grace Farms Foundation. The workshop brought together some 110 participants from Permanent Missions to the United Nations, UN entities, national law enforcement agencies, Financial Intelligence Units, the technology sector, the financial sector, media and civil society.  
Panelists:
- H.E. Mr. Christian Wenaweser, Permanent Representative of Liechtenstein to the United Nations
- H.E. Mr. Martin Shearman, Permanent Mission of the United Kingdom to the United Nations
- Mr. Warrick Beaver, Director for Thomson Reuters Customer & Third Party Risk
- Ms. Krishna R. Patel, Justice Initiative Director and General Counsel at Grace Farms Foundation, former Assistant U.S. Attorney
- Dr. James Cockayne, Head of Office at the United Nations for United Nations University (UNU)
Moderated by Mr. Richard Lui, journalist and news anchor for MSNBC and NBC News
