Event description
Contextual Understandings from a Study of ‘Vulnerability’ to Human Trafficking from Albania, Viet Nam, Nigeria to the UK

About this Event

Albania, Viet Nam and Nigeria have consistently been among the top countries of origin for potential cases of ‘modern slavery’ or human trafficking referred into the UK’s National Referral Mechanism (NRM), set up to comply with Article 10 of the Council of Europe Convention on Action against Trafficking. This paper provides an overview of the methods and key findings of a study conducted between April 2017 and March 2019 into ‘vulnerability’ to human trafficking within and from Albania, Viet Nam and Nigeria and the support services available for trafficked persons in the UK. The paper looks beyond an often attributed focus of understanding ‘vulnerability’ to trafficking as individual characteristics of age and gender, combined with poverty. Rather this paper examines how factors at the individual, household and family, community and at structural level are significant and interlinked in the backgrounds of trafficked persons. The paper questions the notion of ‘vulnerability’ to trafficking by examining how individuals can enter into trafficking situations as they actively seek to resist and overcome ‘vulnerabilities’ facing them and those around them.
