  • Maintain oversight of the latest trends in ICT-facilitated trafficking techniques.
  • Work with partners to develop tools to counter these efforts.
  • Ensure all tools developed maintain the utmost safety for users.
  • Maintain a watching brief monitoring non-tech innovations in the anti-slavery space, with an eye on innovative interventions that can be scaled.
