Globalization allows for the more efficient production and delivery of goods and services, but it also has produced horrific working conditions for thousands of people across the globe. Free movement of labour across borders brings greater opportunity, but gaps in law enforcement and labour market regulation allow for the exploitation of workers, many of whom find themselves in unsafe working and living conditions, with few rights or legal recourse and subject to severe physical or emotional trauma.
In response to the scourge of modern slavery, the UK Government passed into law the Modern Slavery Act in 2015. In addition to fighting conditions that lead to slavery within the UK, British businesses also must draft plans of how they plan to keep slavery and labour and human rights abuse out of their global supply chains.
