Katarina Schwarz

Rights Lab Associate Director (Law and Policy Programme) and Principal Research Fellow in Antislavery Law and Policy


Dr. Katarina Schwarz leads the Rights Lab’s Law and Policy Programme. Her research interrogates the law and policy frameworks operating at the global, regional, and domestic level to determine the elements of effective anti-slavery governance and map trends, successes, and failures in this area. This includes work developing and analysing the Antislavery in Domestic Legislation Database—the world’s first comprehensive database of the domestic legislation and international obligations of all 193 UN Member States with regard to slavery and related forms of exploitation.
