Consultation on our research priorities

We want your views to inform our research priorities over the next five years and beyond.

Published: 22nd July 2020

The Modern Slavery and Human Rights Policy and Evidence Centre (Modern Slavery PEC, or the Centre), exists to enhance understanding of modern slavery and transform the effectiveness of law and policies designed to overcome it.

With the commissioning of high-quality research at its heart, the Centre aims to bring together academics, policymakers, businesses, civil society, survivors and the public on a scale not seen before in the UK to collaborate on solving this global challenge.

In line with the Centre’s collaborative approach, we are launching a consultation to inform our research priorities over the next five years and beyond.

We would welcome input from a wide range of people working in the anti-slavery field, including academics, civil society, policymakers, lawmakers, businesses, frontline activists and – most importantly – survivors.

The below survey is the first and an important part of this process, seeking to find out about the research priorities amongst individuals and organisations working in the anti-slavery field. Other aspects of the consultation include the mapping of stakeholders and the development of evidence reviews. You will be asked about your willingness to participate in the later stages of the process at the end of the survey.

The responses will help the Modern Slavery PEC develop its research strategy, which we will publish towards the end of 2020.

We value everyone’s views. We are keen to receive input from as many people and organisations as possible, no contribution is too small. Please share this survey with anyone who could contribute with their insight. Thank you.
