Closed - IASC and Rights Lab call for evidence on re-trafficking



The Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner and the University of Nottingham Rights Lab launched a call for evidence on 20 May 2021 on re-trafficking to inform a rapid piece of research. The deadline for submitting evidence was 14 July 2021.

The research, commissioned by the IASC and led by the Rights Lab, aims to understand the evidence, data and literature available on re-trafficking as well as to hear from those in the sector about their experiences and the reality of re-trafficking in their work. 

This evidence will allow us to identify knowledge and data gaps in relation to re-trafficking and its causes. The research will also aim to identify any re-trafficking prevention strategies that have been implemented and make recommendations relevant to a UK context as appropriate.  


Submit evidence

We are seeking evidence from across the modern slavery sector including: service providers, NGOs and CSOs, local government, survivor organisations and individuals, businesses, academics and policymakers.

We are looking to gather views and evidence on: 

  • Definitions of re-trafficking

  • Prevention and mitigation
  • Guidance and good practice
