Focus on Human Trafficking & Smuggling

Events (past and future):

Ending Human Trafficking, or Something Else?, Washington, DC, 13 April 2012 [info]
- "This event aims to probe deeper into just how governments and advocates define the problem of trafficking, and how these different perspectives play out on the ground. For example, does “trafficking” encompass all forced labor? Does “trafficking” encompass all acts involving the sale of sex? Are these conceptions of trafficking consistent with international anti-trafficking law – and does that even matter? How have these perspectives shaped advocacy efforts on the ground? Most importantly, have these interventions brought us any closer to a world without trafficking?"
