Measuring Government Response

Measuring Government Response:

Walk Free Government Response is based on an assessment of indicators of good practice, taking into account factors such as whether each country has the necessary laws in place, provides support to victims, and ensures the application of labour standards to vulnerable populations.

The framework for the measure consists of 98 indicators grouped into 28 activities, the level at which government response is rated. Positive indicators are scored on a 0 to 1 scale, negative indicators are scored on a 0 to -1 scale. Data is collected via desk research as well as surveys filled out by governments and NGOs. After a process of external expert verification, data analysis begins with the application of rating rules, review and validation, and clustering by GDPPP.

How to Generate Improved Government Responses

Walk Free explains:

“Crime prevention research…confirms that to reduce the prevalence of crime, including modern slavery, the government needs to:

  • Reduce the opportunity for offenders to commit the crime;
  • Increase the risks of offending;
  • Decrease the vulnerability of potential victims;
  • Increase the capacity of law enforcement and other guardians; and
  • Address the people or factors that stimulate or facilitate slavery.

Further, to prevent crime, governments need to create a climate that induces guilt or shame on those who commit the crime, and strengthen the moral condemnation of modern slavery by both local and global communities.”
