The Modern Slavery PEC
The Modern Slavery and Human Rights Policy and Evidence Centre (the Modern Slavery PEC) was created by the investment of public funding to enhance understanding of modern slavery and transform the effectiveness of law and policies designed to address it. With high quality research it commissions at its heart, the Centre brings 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.
The Centre is a consortium of six academic organisations led by the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law and is funded by the Art and Humanities Research Council on behalf of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).
Our mission is to enhance understanding of modern slavery across the globe and transform the effectiveness of law and policies designed to overcome it.
We commission impartial research to provide innovative, independent, impartial and authoritative insight and analysis on modern slavery. We aim to drive real policy change and have a transformational impact on the understanding of modern slavery and the responses to it.
We bring together academics, policymakers, businesses, civil society and the public on a scale not seen before in the UK to solve this global challenge. We build an inclusive network of networks to facilitate new collaborations capable of generating innovative solutions to modern slavery.
