Human trafficking is arguably one of the world’s big challenges in the 21st century: prosecutions are low across the world; globalisation and demand for cheap products increase incidences of forced labour, domestic servitude, forced begging and benefit fraud; sexual exploitation of women, girls and boys is becoming ever more prevalent.
The London Olympics will see an increase in trafficking for sexual exploitation and street crimes and consequent increase in policing and criminal justice operations. It will provide an opportunity for the development of further best practice and assessment of the impact of human trafficking in the UK and the EU.
This conference is unique in bringing the current state of law and policy of all four corners of the UK into focus, within the EU framework.
This is a co-sponsored event between the Criminal Justice Unit and International Law and Human Rights at UWE Bristol, supported by the Centre for Legal Research.
