Abstract

In 2015 the United Kingdom (UK) introduced the Modern Slavery Act to help improve the response to the threat posed by the trafficking of human beings both within the UK and across its borders. Herewith, this paper presents a rapid evidence assessment of the development of joint investigation teams and their role in human trafficking investigations from a UK perspective. There is little publicly available information about the role of joint investigation teams and this paper addresses that knowledge gap by analysing existing policy-oriented data and situating the findings within the context of other international responses to human trafficking.
