Issara Institute is an independent NGO (U.S. 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit corporation) based in Asia and the United States tackling issues of human trafficking and forced labour through worker voice, partnership, and innovation. The Institute was established in 2014 by a team of anti-trafficking experts coming out of the United Nations who created an alliance of private sector, civil society, and government partners to address labour issues in global supply chains.

Issara connects global brands and retailers to empowered, safeguarded worker voice. We are constantly evolving all the ways that we can build more effective partnerships and technologies to identify and remediate labour abuses in supply chains that are not being detected and resolved by audits or social compliance schemes.
What has worked, and what has not - and why? How are global brands and retailers, suppliers, and recruitment agencies really responding to worker voice? What happens when you put the power of validating working conditions in the hands of workers and not just business? Why does the education and empowerment of jobseekers and workers matter? Our five-year impact report reflects on all these questions and more.
