The Rights Lab is a University of Nottingham Beacon of Excellence focused on research to help end slavery by 2030. The largest group of modern slavery scholars in the world, and home to leading academic experts on slavery, the Rights Lab is helping to underpin antislavery with an advanced research agenda. Its team of around 100 academics focus on four main questions: How many slaves exist in the world and where are they? Why does slavery persist? What works to end slavery? And what difference does freedom from slavery make to the world? Each question forms a central Rights Lab programme, on Data, Survivors, Policy and Business. As a Lab, it is an experimental space and leverages the theories and methods from political science, law, sociology, geospatial science, business analytics, computer science, and mental health, among numerous other disciplines. As a Lab, it also takes practical application as its main purpose and works in close partnership with NGOs, survivor groups, businesses and the policy community on new discoveries, intervention techniques, and rigorous evaluation processes.
