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.
