Annual Lecture, on Wednesday 4th May. This lecture entitled, ‘Structural Injustice, Workers’ Rights and Human Rights’ will be given by Prof Virginia Mantouvalou from UCL.

An increasing number of jobs are precarious, making workers vulnerable to various forms of ill-treatment and exploitation. The UK Government’s main approach has been to criminalise the actions of unscrupulous employers who exploit precarious workers. In this lecture, Professor Mantouvalou will develop an alternative solution, seeking to identify structures that force and trap workers in exploitative work. This injustice will be rectified not through modern slavery laws that criminalise employers who engage in serious exploitation and abuse, but through broader legal reform.
