We strive for a world where people are protected from modern slavery by effective, evidence-based policies.

About us

The Modern Slavery and Human Rights Policy and Evidence Centre (Modern Slavery PEC) was created to enhance understanding of modern slavery and transform the effectiveness of laws and policies designed to overcome it.

Consultation on our research priorities

In line with the Centreโ€™s collaborative approach, we are carrying out a consultation to inform our research priorities over the next five years and beyond.

Event: Virtual Conference

Join our virtual global conference on Assisting and Protecting Survivors of Modern Slavery on 15-16 September, in partnership with the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association UK.
