The Financial Investigation of Human Trafficking in the UK: Legal and Practical Perspectives

Middleton, Ben, Antonopoulos, Georgios A and Papanicolaou, Georgios (2019) The Financial Investigation of Human Trafficking in the UK: Legal and Practical Perspectives. The Journal of Criminal Law, 83 (4). pp. 284-293. ISSN 0022-0183

Item Type: Article


A significant body of law and policy has been directed to organised crime generally, with Human Trafficking remaining high on the political agenda. This article conducts a contextualised study of Human Trafficking in the UK, examining the underpinning legal framework before drawing on the expertise of key professionals in the sector, who have been interviewed for this purpose. It is suggested that it is not so much the legal framework that is the problem, but rather there are a number of practical and policy-related considerations that the government should consider as part of their efforts to combat Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking.
