Survey on Impacts of the Modern Slavery Provisions in the Nationality and Borders Act 2022
A research project led by the British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL), in collaboration with the Human Trafficking Foundation (HTF) and the Anti-Trafficking Monitoring Group (ATMG), is investigating the impacts of the Nationality and Borders Act on the identification and wellbeing of people with lived experience of modern slavery in the UK. The project is funded by the Modern Slavery and Human Rights Policy and Evidence Centre (Modern Slavery PEC).
The Nationality and Borders Act passed into law in April 2022. Since January 2023, the government has implemented a number of the Act’s provisions related to modern slavery (contained in Part 5 of the Act), including through amendments to the Modern Slavery Statutory Guidance. To better understand the impacts of these developments, the project team is inviting staff of anti-trafficking NGOs, First Responders, healthcare workers, and legal practitioners to take part in this survey, which should take no longer than 20 minutes to complete. The survey will remain open until 22nd December.
The data collected in this survey, which can also be completed anonymously, will be treated as confidential and in line with legal and institutional policy requirements (including GDPR). No identifiable information about you will be published or shared beyond the project team.
Thank you very much in advance for your participation, and please feel free to share the survey link with colleagues working in this area. Should you have any questions about the survey or the project more broadly, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the project team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
