Blood Bricks: Examining the Climate Change-Modern Slavery Nexus in the Cambodian Construction Industry

Project: Research

Project Details


'Climate change and slavery: the perfect storm?' - this was the prescient headline of an article by The Guardian (2013)
which called for more international conversation on the links between these urgent threats to environmental and human
security. This study forwards this call by examining the inter-linkages between climate change, different axes of structural
inequality (e.g. gender, age), and vulnerability to trafficking into modern slavery. The project asks who is most at the
'receiving end' of climate change, is most likely to enter into modern slavery, and who has fewer capabilities and resources
than others to adapt to climate change in alternative ways?
