14 JUNE 2022 — DEMAND FOR HT: WE ARE ALL RESPONSIBLE FOR HUMAN TRAFFICKING AS CONSUMERS OF FORCED LABOR AND SEXUAL SLAVERY. HOW CAN WE END THIS CYCLE ?

In order to end human trafficking, it is essential that we target demand, rather than focusing purely on supply-side measures. Whilst the status quo is to employ supply-side measures, these can only ever be reactive. Whereas, demand-side measures are proactive in the prevention of human trafficking, as demand is a root cause of trafficking and therefore must be pursued in the fight to end this affront to human rights and dignity

28 JUNE 2022 — JUSTICE & HT: THE GAP BETWEEN THE LAW AND ITS IMPLEMENTATION IN PRACTICE

In 2016 alone, over 40 million people were victims of modern slavery (ILO, IOM). Out of all these instances of human trafficking, only 0.01% of cases end in a conviction (Kevin Hyland). We will focus on the gap between the current state of the law on human trafficking, and its implementation in practice
