Creative Paths to Freedom?

The Antislavery Knowledge Network is led by Universities in Africa and the UK. It supports research and innovative and impactful work to address exploitation and contemporary slavery in Africa using approaches from the arts and humanities. Thanks to funding from the UK's Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the Global Challenges Research Fund, we have commissioned and supported a range of research projects. Together we aim to grow our network and explore how approaches from the arts and humanities can address contemporary forms of enslavement by adopting a community-engaged, human rights focus that delivers development impacts.
