Speaker information

Professor Zoe Trodd, Director of the Rights Lab, University of Nottingham, Professor Zoe Trodd is Director of the Rights Lab, a University of Nottingham Beacon of Excellence with dozens of projects and 150 team members, that is delivering research to help end slavery by 2030. Her books include To Plead Our Own Cause: Personal Stories by Today’s Slaves (2008), Modern Slavery (2009), The Tribunal (2012), and Picturing Frederick Douglass (2015), and she currently holds two major grants, the Antislavery Usable Past (£1.8m, 2014-19) and the Antislavery Knowledge Network (£2m, 2017-21).

There are an estimated 40 million people enslaved around the world today, including 13,000 people in the UK. Responding to this challenge over the past 20 years, a new antislavery movement has shown us that a world without slavery is possible. The eradication of slavery by 2030 is now a target for the global community as part of the Sustainable Development Goals. But we still lack long-term, evidence-based strategies for abolition. Beyond awareness-raising and declarations, how can we achieve an end to global slavery by 2030?
