Anti-Slavery International is the world’s oldest international human rights organisation, founded in 1839 by British abolitionists such as William Wilberforce and Thomas Clarkson.

Today, Anti-Slavery International is the only British charity exclusively working to eliminate all forms of slavery and slavery like practices throughout the world, including: forced labour; debt bondage; human trafficking; descent-based slavery; worst forms of child labour; slavery in supply chains; forced and early marriage; the exploitation of migrant workers in conditions amounting to slavery

ASI have consultative status with the UN Economic and Social Council, participatory status with the Council of Europe and we are a member of the International Labour Organization Special List of NGOs. ASI is not interested in easy solutions. Instead, ASI deals with the root causes of slavery and its consequences to achieve sustainable change.
