Please join us for a national conference on local, community-based anti-slavery strategies, partnerships and action.
The day-long event is organised by the University of Nottingham’s Rights Lab and the UK Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner (IASC), Kevin Hyland, in association with the ESRC Festival of Social Sciences.
Together the conference speakers and delegates will explore how we can make our communities more resilient against modern slavery.
The conference will launch and present the findings of innovative new collaborative research that maps UK multi-agency anti-slavery partnerships.
The new research and report by the IASC and the University of Nottingham provide the first comprehensive overview of anti-slavery partnership work in the UK, together with an assessment of its strengths and challenges, and the associated implications for national and local policy-makers. The joint report will be available to all delegates, as well as an interactive web-based map and directory online.
The conference will also feature case studies of promising practice, from across the UK, in tackling common challenges such as building effective partnerships, community engagement and awareness-raising, intelligence gathering, and providing care and support for survivors.
The conference is free to attend and lunch will be provided. A full programme will be released in September 2017.
