The Truth About Modern Slavery
Online

With Emily Kenway in conversation with Dawn Foster. In 2019, over 10,000 possible victims of slavery were found in the UK. From men working in Sports Direct warehouses for no pay, to teenaged Vietnamese girls trafficked into small town nail bars, we’re told that modern slavery is all around us, operating in plain sight. The Truth About Modern Slavery provides a vital challenge to conventional narratives on modern slavery.
