Topic: Widening our lens: incorporating essential perspectives in the fight against human trafficking

Presenter: Associate Professor Jonathan Todres - Georgia State University, College of Law

The modern movement to combat human trafficking is more than a decade old now. In that time, most governments have relied primarily on law enforcement measures to combat human trafficking. Criminal law and law enforcement are necessary but not sufficient. In the past decade, despite thousands of prosecutions globally, there is little evidence that the incidence of human trafficking has declined. To achieve meaningful progress in the fight against human trafficking, other sectors of society need to play a more significant role. This paper explores places and perspectives policy makers might look to in order to develop law, policy, and programs that are better equipped to prevent this gross violation of human dignity.
