This paper:

  • investigates the links between immigration status and migrants' vulnerability to forced labour;
  • explores how socio-legal status (specific rights to residence, work and social welfare) impacts on migrants' risk of forced labour, and;
  • reviews UK immigration policy, to assess how far it may reduce or facilitate the use of forced labour.
