Human Trafficking



February 29, 2012 - Human trafficking has been deemed modern-day slavery and has emerged as one of the world’s most expansive and enigmatic global phenomena of the 21st century.  It has been referred to as a “Shared Global Shame” since it affects all nations and has yet to be stopped despite aggressive international efforts.  As international awareness of this issue has increased, efforts by both the governmental and non-governmental sectors have mounted.  This panel discussion examined all forms of human trafficking, including sex trafficking, domestic servitude and forced labor and explored the lessons learned as the world continues to move forward in its fight against human trafficking.
