Event description

Description

Confirmed speakers include: Katie Bales (University of Bristol), Jon Burnett (Swansea University) and David Whyte (University of Liverpool)

This session will explore how forced labour has been effectively removed from mainstream research agendas concerned with forced labour.

It will focus on three key sites of forced labour, including the use of work in immigration detention centres, prison work, and workfare schemes. These sites all are all forms of forced labour that are organised and administered by government.

The session therefore raises fundamental epistemological questions about how social problems are conceptualised in relation to policy agendas, and asks questions about how we can reshape the current debate on forced labour.

Co-organised with the Centre for the Study of International Slavery
