On October 27-28, FMHT will host a EU Jean Monnet Erasmus + funded interactive innovative workshop, titled R20;Disrupting the Human Trafficking-Migration Nexus." By bringing together academics, practitioners, local, national, and regional policymakers, NGOs, advocates, students, first person observers, and survivors, we are interested in convening to discuss the convergence of trafficking and migration, with a particular focus on innovation that disrupts exploitation markets of vulnerable and displaced refugees. This workshop seeks to investigate human trafficking within a broader migration framework and propose innovative solutions to disrupt trafficking and prevent humanitarian and labour right violations. We will address this from multiple perspectives, including policy, activism, and research. Broadly, the structure of the conference will be centered upon three themes: Legal Challenges R11; Prevention, Prosecution, and Protection Private Sector Solutions R11; Combatting Human Trafficking with Data Analytics and Disruptive Technologies Exploring the Intersectionality of Human Trafficking and Migration R11; Recommendations for Future Policy & Research In addition to the core roundtable discussions, there will be breakout panels featuring a variety of presentations, papers, technological solutions, and innovative approaches. The FMHT Initiative will publish the contributions in two formats: a conference policy report and an academic symposium publication. For more information please click here.
