Hello & Welcome
This newsletter is designed to update you on the latest resources available via the anti-slavery partnership toolkit. Every month we highlight new documents, and also call for examples from our readers, which could help to fill an existing gap in knowledge. Sharing learning is essential to building evidence about effective action against modern slavery, and we are keen to develop the impact of both the toolkit, and anti-slavery partnership work more broadly. If you have any comments or suggestions, please contact us.
Following recent events (including both the Afghanistan crisis and Brexit), we focus on guidance in supporting migrants who may be vulnerable to modern slavery.
Supporting European Economic Area nationals with care needs
This factsheet provides information to help local authorities establish a person's support options when they are destitute or at risk of homelessness. Specific attention is paid to changes to EEA nationals' immigration rights and requirements following Brexit.
The factsheet can be accessed under 'Migrant support' here.
Migrants and their vulnerability to human trafficking, modern slavery and forced labour
Fiona David, Katherine Bryant, and Jacqueline Joudo Larsen
This comprehensive report examines the relationship between migration and modern slavery, identifying which migrants are vulnerable, when they are vulnerable, and in what enabling circumstances.
The report can be accessed under 'Migrant support' here.
As we enter the new academic year, we highlight recent work regarding university engagement with the anti-slavery agenda.
The Slavery-Free Campus: A blueprint for university action against modern slavery
University of Nottingham Rights Lab and Modern Slavery Working Group
This report presents research regarding universities as sites of exploitation risk, sites of risk mitigation, and sites of antislavery education and engagement. These findings are then developed to present 'The Slavery-Free Campus Blueprint' which consists of 38 practical steps that universities can take to address modern slavery.
The report can be accessed under 'Education' here.
