Addressing Modern Slavery

Griffith University Research Project


Addressing modern slavery in

construction operations and supply chains

Griffith University is undertaking a research project to examine current practices for addressing modern slavery in construction operations and supply chains in Australia, with a view to proposing operational and practical guidance, as well as recommendations for entities in the construction industry. In this research, we will conduct an industry-wide questionnaire survey and a series of semi-structured interviews with industry experts to gain an understanding of their current practices in addressing modern slavery. Participants will receive the report from this research.

Please complete the questionnaire if you operate within or are aligned with the construction industry. Please also distribute the questionnaire to any of your contacts, contractors or associates in the construction industry.
