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



The Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner and the University of Nottingham Rights Lab have today (20 May 2021) launched a call for evidence on re-trafficking to inform a rapid piece of research. 

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 
  • Causes and drivers
  • Prevention and mitigation
  • Guidance and good practice

This call for evidence will run until 30 June 2021.
