Exposing modern slavery policy-making to management theory (PRME seed funding)

Building on a study of state-organised forced labour in Uzbekistan’s cotton industry (McGuire and Laaser, 2018), this project examines how policy-makers conceptualise and monitor modern slavery and considers the role that management theories could play in strengthening their hand. This is funded by a UN Global Compact initiative, The Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME).
