Introduction [excerpt from Open Learn]
The topic of this free course is modern slavery. While slavery was abolished in the nineteenth century, it continues in the modern world and affects millions of people worldwide. Modern slavery takes various forms, e.g. trafficking in human beings (THB), forced labour and bonded labour. THB is a complex issue, which poses a challenge to legal regulation, particularly in a human rights context. It is an excellent and timely example of modern slavery, which is likely to challenge existing preconceptions about slavery and human rights protection in the twenty-first century. Go to Open Learn
