This increase maybe due to enhanced efforts to raise awareness about modern slavery and encourage individuals to report suspicious cases to the Modern Slavery Helpline.

      Workshop on migration and hospitality

      At a time when headlines report, critique and stir anti-immigration attitudes and politics, (in)hospitality towards migrants, asylum seekers and refugees is becoming highly problematic.

      In previous years, a number of academic, research and teaching networks in universities and business schools have emerged in the business and human rights (BHR) arena, becoming both creations and co-creators of the BHR field. How do research and teaching in these networks help advance BHR thinking and practice? Which audiences and stakeholders do they reach or should they aim to reach? How do they contribute to identifying and building on what works in BHR?
