Modern slavery, in the form of labour exploitation, domestic servitude, sexual trafficking, child labour and cannabis farming, is still growing in the UK and industrialised countries, despite the introduction of laws to try to stem it. This hugely topical book, by a team of high-profile activists and expert writers, is the first critically to assess the legislation, using evidence from across the field, and to offer strategies for improvement in policy and practice. It argues that, contrary to its claims to be world-leading, the Modern Slavery Act is inconsistent, inadequate and punitive; and that the UK government, through its labour market and immigration policies, is actually creating the conditions for slavery to be promoted.

Review:

"Timely and important... It is difficult to do justice to the breadth and depth of expertise, information and analysis in this densely packed book." Institute of Race Relations Weekly Digest, 22 May - 4 June 2019 "Combining diverse commentators dealing with 'modern slavery', this book provides a sweeping criticism of the UK response. Several years after the Modern Slavery Act was enacted, it's a timely call for improvement." Sasha Jesperson, Centre for the Study of Modern Slavery, St. Mary's University
