Modern Slavery Statement

Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person's liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.

SOAS is committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all business relationships. We seek to work with our suppliers to undertake due diligence in the supply chain, take mitigating steps to help manage the risks of slavery and human trafficking, particularly in higher-risk spend categories, and address any problems should they arise.

We fully support the government’s objectives to eradicate modern slavery and human trafficking.
