Caroline Emberson

Rights Lab Nottingham Research Fellow in Slavery and Domestic Servitude


Dr. Caroline Emberson (Business) is a Nottingham Research Fellow within the Rights Lab and Nottingham University Business School. As part of the Business and Economies Programme, she leads the Rights Lab's work on modern slavery and servitude risk in domestic work. She is particularly interested in the risks of modern slavery within home-based care in developed countries. She aims to answer three key questions about how managers in the public sector can manage 'cash for care' schemes to avoid such risks: What different types of approaches exist? How do the approaches in different countries compare? and what characteristics lead to one approach being favoured over another? Further details for participants may be found here  PDF

Her previous work for the Rights Lab includes an investigation of public sector supply chains in England, carried out in partnership with Nottinghamshire County Council, which examined slavery risk within adult social care.
