Abstract

The development of effective policy and practice in relation to responding to and preventing modern slavery necessitates scientifically valid estimates of the social and economic costs of both the problem itself and the relative costs and benefits of the emergent interventions.Cost-benefit analysis is considered to be a tool that can assist in ethical and political decision making. Consequently, itis the principle method used by governments to assess the potential societal benefits of public investment in projects and intervention initiatives (Boardman et al, 2001)1. Such analysis can also assist in the determination of the relative cost effectiveness of competing interventions (Proag & Proag, 2014)2. In this instance cost-benefit analysiswill be undertaken to examine the costs of human slavery in Thames Valley and to explorethe benefits offered from the ITA services
