On Thursday 8 September 2016 a report that I co-wrote with Summer Walker, entitled Fighting Human Trafficking in Conflict: 10 Ideas for Action by the United Nations Security Council, was launched at the United Nations. 

The report was written with support from the UK Permanent Mission to the UN, the Liechtenstein Permanent Mission to the UN, Thomson Reuters and Grace Farms Foundation. It was launched at the UN with press and public events including UK Ambassadors Matthew Rycroft and Martin Shearman, and Liechtenstein Ambassador Christian Wenaweser. 

The report has garnered extensive coverage. An op-ed I wrote on the report has had more than 180,000 readers worldwide on different platforms, since it was posted. The launch was reported on in the UK Daily Mail, and on Yahoo! News, a major global news provider. More coverage, for example on the US security law website, Just Security, will soon be forthcoming.
