Current Challenges in Combating Human Trafficking 20 Years After the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action

 

Twenty years after the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, human trafficking continues to be pervasive around the world.  Women and girls, in particular, are vulnerable to human trafficking in a variety of sectors, and they experience coercion, abuse, and a climate of fear in their work.  This panel will feature discussion by anti-trafficking experts as they examine the challenges in implementation of human rights-based, long-term actions by governments, NGOs, and other stakeholders. Particular attention will be paid to current anti-trafficking strategies in the U.S., including around prostitution and commercial sex, from a human rights perspective.
