Australia: Independent review of the Modern Slavery Act recommends overhaul of the law

"Modern Slavery Act fails to fix scourge report finds", 29 May 2023


A review into the Modern Slavery Act has found there was “no hard evidence” to suggest it had been effective in preventing incidents of modern slavery, which affects 49.6 million people globally.


The review by former Australian information commissioner John McMillan was tabled in parliament [...] containing 30 recommendations to strengthen the act.

“There is no hard evidence that the act has caused meaningful change for people living in conditions of modern slavery,” the review says.

“A second criticism is the Modern Slavery Act itself is not strong enough.

“The third and more fundamental criticism is that a transparency mechanism is, at best, of limited value, and at worst, inherently flawed.”
