Last week on one hot June afternoon in Bangkok, a regional conference on human trafficking took place at the Shangri-La hotel. The setting at first glance seemed nothing out of the ordinary for an event of this sort. A grand conference room in a five star hotel crowded with national delegations, NGOs and international organisations.
But one thing stood out – Microsoft, a multinational technology leader, had not only joined this conference on ICT and human trafficking but actively contributed towards shaping the conference and bringing it to life in partnership with six International Organizations including IOM, UN-ACT, UN Women, UNICEF, USAID and UNODC.
