Pursuant to section 54 (1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 of the United Kingdom (UK), Middlesex University outlines its Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement within the Public Policy Statements section on its website at: www.mdx.ac.uk/about-us/policies/public-policy-statements. The University is committed to carrying out procurement of goods and services in an environmentally, socially, ethically and economically responsible manner and to entering into agreements and contracts with suppliers that share and adhere to this commitment. Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.
