Non-criminalisation of victims of trafficking in persons

21 Jul 2016
Professor Andreas Schloenhardt

A recent publication by Professor Andreas Schloenhardt & Rebekkah Markey-Towler from the UQ Human Trafficking Working Group, examines the principle of non-criminalisation which serves to protect victims from prosecution for offences, which they may have committed during the course of their trafficking experience. Entitled ‘Non-criminalisation of victims of trafficking in persons: principles, promises, and perspectives’, the article has just been published in the Groningen Journal of International Law p10-38.

UQ Migrant Smuggling and the Human Trafficking Working Group enable students from across schools to design, manage and publish a major research project with support from potential employers. Since 2008, more than 150 UQ students have contributed to an impressive body of research and developed interdisciplinary skills.
