    Modern Slavery and the Covid-19 Response

    Corruption in the awarding of PPE contracts to friends of British government ministers has widely been reported in the press over the last twelve months – but far less attention has been paid to the significant role played by modern slaved in the production of much of the equipment supplied to the NHS at the height of the pandemic.

    The refugee crisis: a crisis of compassion?

How can a system that is supposed to help people fleeing unimaginable horrors be so callous? In the latest episode of Beyond the Story, GLOBUS correspondent Caitlin Hoyland discusses why the UK migration system is broken and desperately needs to offer more compassion for refugees.
