Rights Lab PhD Student in Sociology and Social Policy
Toluwanimi Jaiyebo is currently undertaking a PhD in the School of Sociology and Social Policy at the University of Nottingham supervised by Dr. Alison Gardner and Dr. Roda Madziva. Her research aims to answer the question: how can capacity development between organisations in the global south and global north within the modern slavery response sector be decolonised? It hopes to produce a practical model, of decolonised capacity-strengthening within the antislavery sector. Toluwanimi holds a BA in Politics and Law from the University of Kent (2011), an LLM in International Human Rights Law and Practice from the University of York (Centre for Applied Human Rights) in 2013 and is a qualified legal practitioner (2014). She is completing the PhD part-time and continues to work as part of The Salvation Army global modern slavery and human trafficking response team. Her role involves supporting Salvation Army churches in Africa, Asia, South Pacific, and Latin America to respond to modern slavery and human trafficking within their communities.
