Background

In 1808, HMS Solebay was the first British ship to be part of the anti-slavery operation patrolling the African Atlantic coast to halt the Atlantic slave trade.

Project Solebay will develop risk assessment tools for the UK military to support them in responding to modern slavery. In response to the Modern Slavery Act 2015, the MOD is establishing the requirement for a counter slavery capability and is formalising a strategic response.

The Global Slavery Index suggests the UK military operates among at least 2 million enslaved people. However, the military currently has no way to identify or understand that risk, of which this project seeks to respond.

Objectives

1
To develop and validate with experts, a strategic risk identification and risk assessment methodology that considers risk from the perspective of the individual and the impact of wider societal factors to understand the potential threat, risk and harm.
2
Use STRIAD to develop a cloud-based version of the risk identification and assessment tool to enable future analytics of identified persons/locations and (related) assessment variables to derive insights into patterns and trends in modern slavery abroad.
