Anti-trafficking Sector Response to the Ministry of Justice’s Human Rights Act Reform Consultation

March 2022

Organisations from the anti-trafficking sector have responded to the Government’s Human Rights Act consultation, raising significant concerns with the proposals. If implemented, the proposed changes will undermine fundamental support and protection for victims of modern slavery offences. Rather than tackling the causes of human trafficking and creating meaningful pathways out of exploitation, they demonstrate that this is an exercise to curtail fundamental rights and evade accountability and responsibility.
