PhD Research

This PhD studies the impacts of Brexit on the prevalence, and nature, of human trafficking from EU member states to the United Kingdom. The aim of this research is to identify how geopolitical changes brought about by Brexit will impact on those most vulnerable to becoming victims of human trafficking. This study employs a victim-focused approach with engagement between the researcher and Charities / NGOs working as advocates for communities where human trafficking is particularly prevalent. It is intended that this research is to have implications at both the policy and practitioner level for how we re-engage with victims of human trafficking from the EU after Brexit. It is also intended that this research is to have theoretical implications through a post-structuralist deconstruction of the Brexit policy narrative.
