    Abstract Emerging evidence demonstrates that financial exclusion multiplies modern slavery risks for vulnerable populations, including human trafficking for sexual and labour exploitation. FAST therefore proposes that financial inclusion is a potential protective factor against vulnerability to exploitation. This is a nascent theory of change, however, with limited research. To understand the relevant policy landscape to support such a theory, this paper analyses if and how countries with the highest prevalence of modern slavery currently identify and articulate modern slavery risks in their national financial inclusion strategies and outline actions to mitigate them.
