Empowering decision makers to end modern slavery.

What we do

Research & Development

We conduct research globally to collect data and satires on various facets of modern slavery. We work closely with country-level experts to produce high quality contextual work. Our research informs policy and stakeholders to craft a stronger response to fight modern slavery.

Training & Workshops

Your brand thrives to be ethical, but aligning your global suppliers sounds like a daunting task? Leave it to us. We are here to ensure your brand’s human rights standards and ethical value is conveyed and respected by all suppliers.​

Survivor Engagement

We directly engage with survivors as partners to establish effective strategies that address prevention, protection and prosecution efforts.

Our Mission

1. To combat modern slavery 

2. To empower and to widen employment opportunities for local people, primarily educated youth in the developing countries.

Our Vision

A slave-free world, where everyone is equally valued, respected and able to flourish.

What is Modern Slavery?

The recruitment, movement, harbouring or receiving of children, women or men through the use of force, coercion, abuse of vulnerability, deception or other means for the purpose of exploitation.” Exploitation includes, but is not limited to, sexual exploitation, forced or bonded labour, forced criminality, domestic servitude and the removal of organs. *

*As defined by the UK Government

Ending modern slavery is on the global agenda. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals Target 8.7 is to: “Take 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, including recruitment and use of child soldiers, and by 2025 end child labour in all its forms.”

Why Humanity Research Consultancy?

Stand with us and other visionary decision-makers to end modern slavery and extreme abuse in supply chains and societies, globally.

Survivor-centred and worker-centred

We prioritise the voices of people we care and fight for – survivors of modern slavery, and workers who are vulnerable to exploitations. We intentionally create spaces and bring them into the design of our research team and decision-making team.   


To understand complex issues, we prioritise local voices. In every project, we ensure that we don’t just have translators, but have team members who are from the places and speak the languages. We are able to work with the most grassroots organisations.

Feminist approach

We value diversity and inclusion as essential assets for achieving transformative change and sustainable development. We respond to lived experiences by taking into account intersectional dimensions of discrimination and inequality.


We are addressing an extremely unsettling problem in our world that involves 50 million victims. We don’t believe any entity can address it alone, and that’s why we believe in a collaborative approach. We share our knowledge and publish our research diligently.

Making an impact across the globe

Our Clients

Examples of organisations we work with:

We implement the projects on determinants of anti-trafficking policies in Bahrain and Algeria for British Institute of International and Comparative Law. The projects assessed the links and sequencing of specific factors that have yielded improved political will and capacity in national governments to address trafficking in persons and which have led to sustained and comprehensive anti-trafficking efforts.

We work with the UK-based think tank Institute of Development Studies on a participatory research project funded by Winrock International and USAID. The aim is to understand what counts as successful reintegration for survivors of human trafficking, with a focus on Cambodia and Bangladesh.

We work with the International Labor Rights Forum since 2019 to support the expansion of Seafood Working Group – a global coalition of labour, human rights and environmental organisations working to end labour abuse and forced labour in the global seafood industry.
