The e-Handbook: Legislating against Modern Slavery, Human Trafficking & Forced Labour is a comprehensive guide for parliamentarians and parliamentary officials on legislating effectively against modern slavery-related crimes.
The first volume of the e-Handbook, published in 2018, looked in detail at the process of reviewing and strengthening legislation from gaining cross-party support to drafting a bill itself. Urmila Bhoola, UN Special Rapporteur on Contemporary Forms of Slavery, described it as “the most comprehensive, insightful and practical guide that exists in its field.”
Recognising that modern slavery-related crimes are ever evolving - and with growing global awareness - CPA UK has produced a second volume of the e-Handbook titled Legislating against Modern Slavery, Human Trafficking & Forced Labour: The Role of Parliament to Scrutinise and Raise Awareness, which takes into account emerging trends in addressing modern slavery, human trafficking and forced labour.
The resource covers themes such as good practice for parliamentary committees and evidence hearings; the importance of raising awareness in parliament and constituencies; and the role of the media in combatting these heinous crimes.
