Research centre aims to put an end to modern slavery

A £10-million research centre funded through UK Research and Innovation is to explore ways to tackle modern slavery.

Funded by UKRI’s Strategic Priorities Fund for five years, the Policy and Evidence Centre for Modern Slavery and Human Rights will bring together academics, businesses and charities with a focus on prevention, victim recovery, supply chains and law enforcement, UKRI announced on 9 July.

The multidisciplinary centre will be formed by a consortium of universities and independent research organisations and will be led by the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law. Partners in the consortium include the Rights Lab at the University of Nottingham, the Wilberforce Institute at the University of Hull and the Alan Turing Institute in London.
