Dr. Ben Brewster works as part of the Rights Lab’s Health and Wellbeing Programme. His Nottingham Research Fellowship focuses on the role of online social spaces and computer-mediated-communication in the facilitation of modern slavery, including the role that digital platforms themselves can play in prevention and discovery. Ben has a research background in the evolving methods and behaviour of organised criminals and has worked extensively with international law enforcement agencies, including EUROPOL, on a range of crime issues and their intersections with internet misuse and cybercrime. He is also currently conducting UKRI-funded research into the implications of COVID-19 on Child Criminal Exploitation through the County Lines drug supply model.
