The Project

Modern Slavery: Meaning and Measurement

(2016-18) was led by Prof. Kevin Bales CMG

(University of Nottingham Rights Lab). This cross-disciplinary project used analytical tools from

the humanities (narrative analysis) and the social sciences (multiple systems estimation) to

address key questions and obstacles to the modern anti-slavery movement and linked

scholarship. The team members were Minh Dang, Dr. Andrea Nicholson, Prof. Bernard

Silverman, and Prof. Zoe Trodd, also from the University of Nottingham’s Rights Lab.

The Partnership for Conflict, Crime, and Security

Research (PaCCS)

Modern Slavery: Meaning and Measurement

(2016-18) was funded by the Economic and Social

Research Council (ESRC) and the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), under the

Partnership for Conflict, Crime, and Security Research (PaCCS).

This initiative of the Research Councils in the United Kingdom supports the delivery of high-

quality research with impact, to improve our understanding of current and future global

security challenges. The Partnership supports collaboration by bringing together researchers

from across disciplines to work on innovative projects and creates opportunities for knowledge

exchange between academia, government, industry, and the not-for-profit sector.
