In this extensive examination of the crucial role of education and training in antislavery, we show how education can help individuals and groups move from slavery and indecent work to decent work and sustainable livelihoods.
Working to develop better interventions related to the education-slavery relationship, and improve policy and practice initiatives that seek to better the lives of former slaves, we are tackling the following questions:
1. What do individual ex-slaves aspire to in terms of their well-being and what role might education and training play in achieving their desired functionings?
2. How effectively are existing education and training interventions working with ex-slaves in terms of successful labour market outcomes?
3. How can education and training institutions better support ex-slave learners?
4. What do successful pathways look like through which individuals move from slavery through education and training to decent work / livelihoods?
