Aware of the relevance of approaches that engage with both global policy networks and specific locations to tackle human rights violations globally, the BeGlobal network launched its first workshop in Rio de Janeiro in the BRICS Policy Centre, in January 2020. The workshop in Rio was the first step to the construction of an anti-slavery global cities’ network to discuss local initiatives and their global impacts. This dialogue started in Rio de Janeiro between the cities of Maputo, Bangkok, Nottingham, and Rio de Janeiro with the presence of state representatives, prosecutors, inspectors, and NGO’s that carry on placed-based responses to slavery in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro. As a result of the I Workshop in Rio it was produced a report with the main debates on social determinants of modern slavery in Rio and in the cities’ partners.
