Journalists are not the only ones in touch with exploited workers. In Germany, trade unions offer support via the Fair Mobility Project, through which they reach out to workers on the ground. Fair Mobility has decided on a number of top priority sectors they focus on. This session will be presented by Alina Lippegaus from Berlin, a lawyer who works on the ground in Germany, one of the major destination countries for intra-European labour migration. Alina will talk about the problems they observe in the field, and will explain us how they reach out to the workers and what journalists can learn from their work. We will also hear about the legal challenges and opportunities such workers face.
