Religions take an important role in denouncing modern slavery, in protecting, rescuing and rehabilitating victims of human trafficking.: Religious Leaders  (“Joint Declaration of Religious Leaders Against Modern Slavery”, Rome, 2 December 2014) and religious congregations take a large part in the fight against modern slavery.

This webinar will present:

  • the “Pastoral Orientations on Human Trafficking” proposed by Pope Francis and The Migrants & Refugees Section of the Vatican after a consultation with church leaders, academics and practitioners and partner organizations working in this field 

  • the assessment of the present situation and proposals of representatives of Christian, Jewish and Muslim faiths in order to promote action at the international, regional and national levels

16 NOVEMBER 2021 — MIGRATION AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING 

Assessment of the present situation and proposals of experts

 

12 OCTOBER 2021 — LEGAL APPROACHES TO REDUCING THE DEMAND BEHIND HUMAN TRAFFICKING 

This event takes place within the framework of the Weeks of Action against Human Trafficking. More information on www.18oktober.ch

 

While law enforcement responses to human trafficking are the clear focus globally, they are entirely supply side. 

Supply-side measures can deter, displace, and disrupt specific operations, but do not impact either the size of the nature or the illicit markets for labor. They also fail to counter the perpetual upward spiral of demand that drives the trafficking of people. This overwhelming supply-side focus has meant legal responses on the demand side of the equation are seriously lacking. This webinar is designed to provoke ideas about how the law is used to drive demand-side responses, reducing the driving force for all forms of human trafficking.

LEGAL APPROACHES TO REDUCING THE DEMAND BEHIND HUMAN TRAFFICKING

While law enforce­ment respons­es to human traf­fick­ing are the clear focus glob­al­ly, they are entire­ly sup­ply side. Sup­ply-side mea­sures can deter, dis­place, and dis­rupt spe­cif­ic oper­a­tions, but do not impact either the size of the nature or the illic­it mar­kets for labor. They also fail to counter the per­pet­u­al upward spi­ral of demand that dri­ves the traf­fick­ing of peo­ple. This over­whelm­ing sup­ply-side focus has meant legal respons­es on the demand side of the equa­tion are seri­ous­ly lack­ing. This webi­nar is designed to pro­voke ideas about how the law is used to dri­ve demand-side respons­es, reduc­ing the dri­ving force for all forms of human trafficking.
