Jacqueline Joudo Larsen

Criminologist and Head of Research, Walk Free Foundation

Jacqueline is a criminologist and applied statistician who joined Walk Free in 2013 to shed light on the number of people living in modern slavery around the world. She was appointed a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in recognition of the impact of this work. During an 18-year career in research, Jacqui has focused on social justice and human rights issues, with a particular interest in unpacking the causes of crime, understanding vulnerability and resilience, and using that information to drive policy change. Prior to joining Walk Free, she led research on human trafficking, crimes against international students, violent extremism, and deaths in custody at the Australian Institute of Criminology.
