The National Crime Agency has recently released the statistics relating to the people who were identified in the UK in 2017 as potential victims of Modern Slavery.1 These statistics provide a breakdown of the victims’ nationalities, genders, types of exploitation, and they identify whether the victims were adults or children at the time of exploitation. They also indicate which agencies referred the victims into the National Referral Mechanism (NRM).
Alicia has worked in the field of Modern Slavery since 2012, after completing a dissertation specialising in human trafficking to achieve a Masters in Human Rights and Political Science from The University of Manchester. She then went on to work for an international NGO where she established the West Yorkshire Anti Trafficking and Modern Slavery Network. Alicia then began a PhD in Conflict and Contemporary Slavery at the Wilberforce Institute for the study of Slavery and Emancipation in Hull. Since moving to Hull, she has taken on the position of Vice Chair of the Humber Modern Slavery Partnership and undertakes work, both locally and nationally, to raise awareness and tackle the issue of Modern Slavery.
