Research Interests

Thesis Title

"Abolition and Agenda: An investigation into human trafficking and modern slavery and the connection between 'ideas', policy outputs and victim outcomes."

Alexandra's research aims to map the connections between pre-existing ideas and interests and the human trafficking and modern slavery movement. Following on from this I am tracing the impact and influence of these ideas on policy outputs and ultimately, through a systematic review of victim impact studies, mapping the evidence base for policy interventions.

Alexandra's wider research interests encompass studies of human rights, gender and migration.
