Over the last decade, the economic boom and political conditions in China have led to an increasing number of people from mainland China to migrate to seek work in the UK.

This report reveals the experiences of those Chinese migrant workers in the UK, focusing on forced labour and exploitation, the role of family and social relationships.

The report identifies actions that can be taken by government, civil society organisations, trade unions and employers to tackle forced labour and exploitative working conditions.
