Peter Williams

Principal Advisor, Modern Slavery

Peter Williams serves as IJM’s Principal Advisor on Modern Slavery. As IJM’s leading expert on counter-slavery programs, Peter is responsible for IJM’s center of excellence in addressing slavery, developing globally applicable best practices from IJM’s extensive programmatic experience worldwide. Peter comes to this role from nearly ten years’ field leadership with IJM. Most recently Peter served as Country Director in Cambodia, where he led the development of IJM’s new program to address cross-border labor trafficking within recruiting corridors in the Greater Mekong Subregion, leading to the conviction of more than 30 traffickers in three years. Before that Peter served as Field Office Director in Bangalore, India where he developed a team of lawyers, social workers, investigators and advocacy professionals to expand IJM’s counter-bonded labor programming in the region.

Under his leadership the Bangalore team rescued more than 1200 people from bonded slavery, trained thousands of justice officials, and implemented a ground-breaking bonded labor prevalence study. Peter joined IJM in 2010 as a Legal Fellow in Chennai, India. Before IJM, Peter was a Crown Prosecutor in Auckland New Zealand, where he prosecuted criminal jury trials and was published in the New Zealand Law Journal. Peter holds a BA and an LLB(hons) from the University of Auckland. While at law school Peter co-founded the Equal Justice Project, a pro-bono legal organization for law students (www.equaljusticeproject.co.nz). He currently lives in Auckland with his wife, Tammy and their daughter Brooke.
