Modern Slavery Forum Questions The Effectiveness Of The NRM

Press/Media: Expert Comment

Description

THE UK's National Referral Mechanism is a framework to identify victims of human trafficking and modern slavery to ensure they get the appropriate support. However, it is failing across the country according to a panel of experts at the University of Huddersfield's 2017 Social Justice Lecture.

Concerns were also raised about a growing trend amongst the public for demonising irregular migrants rather than suspecting modern slavery and contacting the police. Dr John Lever said he would even go as far to say that modern slavery was becoming normalised. 'We have to ask ourselves what kind of society do we want to live in?'
