Vietnam has consistently featured in official statistics on modern slavery as one of the top three source countries for victims of the crime. Driven by this, the Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner visited Vietnam in 2015 and subsequently commissioned research to examine the dynamics of Vietnamese exploitation.
Findings have been published. The report includes an outline of the nature and scale of modern slavery experienced by Vietnamese nationals en route to, and within, the UK; the origins and motivations of Vietnamese nationals on the move; the roots and routes of Vietnamese nationals' exploitation; modern slavery experienced by Vietnamese nationals while in the UK; Vietnamese minors in the UK; National Referral Mechanism data quality and its consequences; and concluding recommendations.
