Advisers and Supporters
The Five Corridors Project has been led by FairSquare Projects, a non-profit human rights organisation based in London. FairSquare Projects carries out research and advocacy to help promote and protect human rights, with a particular specialisation on migrant worker rights.
Ambassador (retd) Luis C. deBaca has served as one of the project’s two Senior Advisers. Ambassador DeBaca coordinated U.S. government activities in the global fight against contemporary forms of slavery as head of the State Department’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons during the Obama Administration. He is a Fellow at the Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition of Yale University’s MacMillan Center.
Elizabeth Frantz, a division director for the Open Society International Migration Initiative, is the project’s second Senior Adviser. She leads the organization’s Fair Work program area, which supports efforts to prevent exploitative labor practices affecting migrants and refugees.
We are also fortunate to be able to draw on the expertise and experience of the members of the Five Corridors Project Advisory Group:
- Marie Apostol, Founder and President/CEO of TFHI, Inc (The FAIR Hiring Initiative).
- Associate Professor Bassina Farbenblum, University of New South Wales and Migrant Worker Justice Initiative.
