Law / United Kingdom / Modern Slavery Strategy 2014

The Modern Slavery Strategy sets out the UK Government’s approach to addressing ‘modern slavery’ including human trafficking, forced labour and slavery. The Strategy details the actions to be taken by Government departments, agencies and partners, and has four components: prosecuting and disrupting individuals and groups responsible for modern slavery (Pursue); preventing people from engaging in modern slavery crime (Prevent); strengthening safeguards against modern slavery by protecting vulnerable people from exploitation and increasing awareness and resilience against this crime (Protect); and reducing the harm caused by modern slavery through improved victim identification and enhanced support and protection (Prepare).
