Abstract

There is substantial evidence that the supply chain perspective is crucial for understanding the causes of and the solutions to modern slavery. During the passage of the UK Modern Slavery Act, a consultation was arranged to explore issues relating to the operationalisation of sections of the Act relating to transparency in supply chains. This document is a response to that consultation.
