Tackling the crime of modern slavery and human trafficking is a priority for the Government, both domestically and internationally. The support and protection of victims is a key part of this agenda.
The Prime Minister has championed the issue of tackling modern slavery at the G7, G20 and the United Nations General Assembly, where in 2017 she launched the Call to Action to End Forced Labour, Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking that 43 countries have now endorsed. Tackling human trafficking and child exploitation will be discussed during the week of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting. The summit will provide a forum for continued dialogue and the sharing of best practice across Commonwealth states to tackle this global crime.
