CAPEcast episode 9: A Collaborative Approach To Informing Policy On Modern Slavery

Supported by CAPE’s Collaboration Fund, Dr Alex Trautrims (University of Nottingham) has been working in collaboration with Katherine Lawson from the Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner to address questions around the creation of a Single Enforcement Body for labour market regulation. In this episode, they join Max Gillingham and Ben Sherwood, from Nottingham’s Institute for Policy and Engagement, to explain the impact of their work and to reflect on how collaboration works in successful academic-policy engagement.
