In 2018, the number of potential victims of trafficking and modern slavery reported to the authorities in the UK had risen to 7000, an 80% increase in two years (NCA 2019). 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.

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. Insufficient consideration is given to the experience and agency of migrants themselves in the societies, the communities, and the workplaces through which they transit, in which they live, settle, and work.
What is the state of working conditions and pay in the nursing profession, and what role does gender play? These are questions raised by important new research conducted in collaboration with professional body and nursing union the Royal College of Nursing (RCN).
For migrants and refugees, contact with state, charitable and commercial organisations when settling into ‘host’ societies and entering the labour market significantly shapes their experiences. Since 2016, Dr Peter Lugosi from the Oxford School of Hospitality Management, Dr Clara Della Croce and Dr Sonia Morano-Foadi from the School of Law have been researching how refugees transition into employment. This work has now been extended through a British Academy Newton funded project involving Dr Thiago Allis from the University of Sáo Paulo, Brazil.

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?
