What is wrong with work

Published

    
 
Is Great Britain promoting modern slavery? This form of labour exploitation, domestic servitude, sexual trafficking, child labour and cannabis farming, is still growing in the UK and other industrialised countries, despite the introduction of laws to try to stem it. The Modern Slavery Agenda written 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.

   "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."
