Harkin-Engel Protocol

The Harkin-Engel Protocol is an international agreement that seeks to end slave labor in the production of cocoa. The protocol was negotiated in 2001 by Senator Tom Harkin and Representative Eliot Engel in response to reports of widespread child slavery and child trafficking in West African cocoa production. 

Rep. Engel, the congressman who represents Manhattan College's congressional district, visited campus on Feb. 11, 2013 to discuss the progress made since the Harkin-Engel Protocol was established.
