Risk Assessment for Modern Slavery Response
Developing risk assessment methodologies and tools to enable the UK military response to modern slavery
In 1808, HMS Solebay was the first British ship to be part of the Royal Navy’s anti-slavery operations patrolling the African Atlantic coast to halt the Atlantic slave trade.
Following the UK’s adoption of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, the Ministry of Defence (MOD) has begun exploring the requirement for a strategic response to modern slavery and human trafficking as part of the MOD’s wider human security activities.
The Global Slavery Index suggests there are currently at least 2 million enslaved people in areas where the UK military operates. Through collaboration between Trilateral Research and the MOD, Project Solebay developed a human security risk assessment tool for the UK military to support them in responding to modern slavery and human trafficking.
To develop and validate with experts, a strategic risk identification and risk assessment methodology that considers risk from the perspective of the individual and the impact of wider societal factors to understand the potential threat, risk and harm.
Use STRIAD® to develop a cloud-based version of the risk identification and assessment tool to enable future analytics of identified persons/locations and (related) assessment variables to derive insights into patterns and trends in modern slavery abroad.
