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.
