Joint Briefing for Committee debate on the draft Slavery and Human Trafficking (Definition of Victim) Regulations 2022

June, 2022

This joint briefing produced with ATLEU, ECPAT UK, Helen Bamber Foundation, and Hope for Justice outlines our concerns about the new draft Slavery and Human Trafficking (Definition of Victim) Regulations, raising concerns that they could have far-reaching damaging consequences for victims of trafficking and modern slavery because they narrow the definition of a victim of trafficking and modern slavery and therefore reduce the scope that victims will be identified.
