e-Handbook - Legislating Against Modern Slavery, Human Trafficking & Forced Labour

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 e-Handbook covers topics such as:

  • gathering cross-party support;
  • creating and reviewing legislation;
  • engaging civil society; and
  • the role of parliament at the implementation stage

Over 50 experts from around the Commonwealth have contributed to the resource, including parliamentarians, legislative drafters and leading modern slavery lawyers.


"It is the most comprehensive, insightful and practical guide that exists in its field."
