Dr Prabha Kotiswaran awarded ESRC Global Challenges Research Funding

Posted on 31/01/2017

Dr Prabha Kotiswaran, Reader in Law and Social Justice in The Dickson Poon School of Law has been awarded £145,464 for an ESRC Global Challenges Research Funding Strategic Networks Grant for her project: Beyond Trafficking and Slavery: Towards Decent Work for All.

Through the grant, Dr Kotiswaran and her collaborators (many of whom edit the Open Democracy blog Beyond Trafficking and Slavery) will bring together global stakeholders to map the knowledge terrain and co-define an original research agenda around the 8th Sustainable Development Goal.  This aims to achieve ‘decent work for all’ through what Target 8.7 describes as ‘immediate and effective measures to eradicate forced labour, end modern slavery and human trafficking, and secure the prohibition and elimination of the worst forms of child labour’ by 2030.  In addition to its knowledge-building effort, the project will engage directly with activism by convening three regional workshops and initiating networking opportunities for actors in developing countries from South Asia, South Africa and Latin America.  

The ESRC Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) is part of the UK government’s Official Development Assistance commitment, to support cutting-edge research which addresses the problems faced by developing countries. The Strategic Networks funding aims to deliver critical foundational activity in support of the GCRF.
