Serious and Organised Crime is and always will be a fast-evolving threat. Serious and organised criminals continually seek to use new tactics, techniques and technology to identify means to exploit vulnerabilities and generate illicit profit. Our collective understanding of the nature of the threat to the UK has improved since the publication of the Serious and Organised Crime Strategy in 2013, although in some cases this has pointed to an underestimated level of resilience of organised crime networks, and to the breadth and sophistication of their activities.
This workshop will welcome panels of distinguished speakers to present and discuss some key considerations in addressing modern slavery in the UK, particularly focused on identifying victims, their susceptibility and vulnerability; and whether labour exploitation markets are organised or not.
