Current research: My current research project, Governing the Global Factory, analyses the recent and far-reaching changes in the structure and organisation of global retail production and evaluates the obstacles that these pose to state, business, and civil society efforts to eradicate illegal labour practices (including forced labour, human trafficking and slavery) from global retail supply chains.  I am also editing openDemocracy’s Beyond Slavery: www.opendemocracy.net/beyondslavery.
