Portfolio: Assessing the case for a global commission on modern slavery

Cover of Modern Slavery PEC Report "Assessing the cast for a Global Commission on Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking"

In 2022, I played a small role as a regional consultant on this report. While I was not part of the project team, I was surveyed to provide input.

Project Description: The Modern Slavery and Human Rights Policy and Evidence Centre (Modern Slavery PEC) has been commissioned by the Office of the Rt. Hon. Theresa May MP to conduct a scoping study examining the case for establishing a Global Commission on Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking (the “Scoping Study”). The Scoping Study has been funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO).

Between February and May 2022, the Scoping Study Team directly engaged over 50 actors in the international modern slavery landscape, including global and regional intergovernmental bodies, human rights groups, survivor organizations, civil society organizations and businesses. It also carried out a desk-based surveys and literature review of recent evidence to determine any significant gaps that a Global Commission could fill, and the best potential ways of establishing and funding it. It also carried out a consultation on how to embed persons with lived experience of modern slavery in the work and governance of a Global Commission.
