Call for Research: Prevention of Modern Slavery in the UK
The Modern Slavery and Human Rights Policy and Evidence Centre (the Modern Slavery PEC) has issued a targeted call for rapid research proposals focused on assessing the potential of interventions to prevent modern slavery in the UK.
This call is part of the Modern Slavery PEC Responsive Research mechanism that has been created to fund responsive and agile research projects. It is led directly by the PEC, but is funded and actively supported by the Arts and Humanities Council (AHRC).
The aim of this research project will be to improve understanding of the potential for different interventions to prevent modern slavery in the UK.

The scope is limited to those programmes and activities aiming to prevent modern slavery in the UK that have been developed by government, non-government and civil society actors.
The objectives are to:
Assess interventions to prevent modern slavery, both from the point of view of protecting people being exploited and preventing offending, for each type of modern slavery (i.e. those recorded by the UK’s National Referral Mechanism)
Assess how prevention interventions have had wider impacts, focusing in particular on the equity of outcomes, and including an assessment of cost-effectiveness.
Examine the extent to which survivors, and the perspectives of those with lived experience, have been included in all aspects of design and delivery, identifying best practice.
Explore relevant issues concerning the implementation of interventions, looking at, e.g. context, duration and other factors affecting success.
Consider evidence about interventions delivered to prevent related crime types, such as violence against women and girls, to understand how relevant evidence could be applied to modern slavery prevention.

The Modern Slavery PEC has allocated a maximum budget of £70,000 at 100% full economic cost (FEC) for this project.
The successful applicant will be expected to develop a methodology in collaboration with the Modern Slavery PEC. This must include the following components:
Scope/define the programmes and activities to be included as modern slavery prevention interventions for the purposes of the research, and the parameters of the search
In light of the aim and objectives of this research, and the time constraints for delivery of outputs, applicants will be expected to propose an initial suggested scope including inclusion/exclusion criteria and justification.
Gather and review interventions to inform UK policy.
They expect this to be done using desk-based methods (literature review) which may be complemented by other techniques of data collection such as surveys, interviews and/or focus groups
A mixture of quantitative and qualitative evidence will be required to reflect the wide range of interventions and involvement/engagement with civil society organisations and those with lived experience.
Develop a systematic, clear and logical assessment framework aligning with the Modern Slavery PEC’s guiding principles for research to grade intervention types that delivers a judgement regarding:
the high/medium/low potential to prevent modern slavery
equity of outcomes
Grade the quality of evidence informing these assessments.
The Modern Slavery PEC has previously used a ‘traffic light’ system in policy briefings
The successful applicant will deliver a full report as well as a summary briefing for policymakers. The outputs will be co-produced with the PEC team so there should be ample time included in the proposed project timeline for the sharing of drafts to enable comments and feedback to be incorporated.
The full report should be no more than 10,000 words (excluding references/annexes) The summary briefing should be no more than (2000 words).
The Modern Slavery PEC would welcome proposals that include innovative ideas for presenting data, e.g. with visualisation of results in a format to enhance understanding and to support communication.
