Rights Lab Research Fellow in Slavery and Decent Work
Dr. Katrina Peake (Law) works as part of the Rights Lab's Law and Policy Programme to understand antislavery efforts in the context of the ILO's Decent Work framework. This currently includes a focus on decent work in the garment industry in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Katrina is examining the potential to promote secure employment and labour rights in the garment industry in each country as an effective means of eliminating slavery, and analysing relevant national labour rights and antislavery legislation and case law, and its connection with international law. Her research background is in EU trade and sustainable development instruments, including how far they promote labour rights in the Ready-Made Garment industry of South and South East Asia.
