Human Trafficking Foundation Call for Evidence: Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

The Human Trafficking Foundation have launched an inquiry into modern slavery and human trafficking – and more specifically, unaccompanied and separated minors in Europe. Submissions must be made by 25 May 2017.

The aim of the inquiry is to:

  • Assess the risk of trafficking and exploitation facing such unaccompanied and separated minors
  • Assess the alleged ‘pull factor’ to the UK (the suggestion that a route to the UK encourages traffickers)
  • Assess the ability and willingness of local authorities to accept more unaccompanied minors
  • Examine what action is required to better protect children from the risks of trafficking and exploitation
  • Examine the UK’s response towards young people at risk in Europe who have sought refuge from countries in turmoil
  • Assess the impact of current policy on these risks
  • Make recommendations on future policy

The Foundation is accepting written submissions (in Word format) to Christine Beddoe at Submissions must be made by 25 May 2017.

The Foundation plans to publish a report of the inquiry findings in early July 2017.
