"The Wilberforce Institute has become a world leader in the study and explication of slavery today... I can think of few research institutes that have had more impact on our understanding of and response to a crucial problem facing Britain today."
Frank Field, MP, Chair of The Modern Slavery Bill Evidence Review
We played an integral role in the development of the landmark bill to help eradicate modern slavery in the UK: the Modern Slavery Act 2015. We gave evidence to the Modern Slavery Evidence Review chaired by Frank Field, MP. We’re helping improve legislation and continue to advise the Houses of Parliament on proposed revisions to the Act. We advised the UK’s Anti-Slavery Commissioner, Kevin Hyland, OBE, informing projects aiming to tackle slavery across the world.
