Katarina Schwarz

Rights Lab Associate Director and Assistant Professor of Antislavery Law and Policy, University of Nottingham

Dr Katarina Schwarz leads the Law and Policy Programme at the University of Nottingham’s Rights Lab, a research platform focussed on helping to end slavery by 2030. Her research interrogates the law and policy frameworks operating at the global, regional, and domestic level to determine the elements of effective anti-slavery governance and map trends, successes, and failures. To support evidence-based action in anti-slavery governance, Schwarz is co-developing and analysing the world’s first comprehensive database of the domestic legislation and international obligations of all UN Member States with regard to modern slavery—launching in December 2019.
