Training: Human Trafficking - Global and Local Perspectives
As one of the most profitable crimes and one that knows no borders, human trafficking is also one of the most heinous human rights violations. This (graduate level) course will offer a historical overview of the trafficking in persons. Attention will also be given to a wide-range of related topics and issues ranging from methodological research issues related to the study of human trafficking, the range and scope of criminal justice response mechanisms, the evolutive nature of human trafficking, various international response mechanisms and models, as well as a look at future issues as they pertain to more effectively and efficiently responding to human trafficking. Although the course will have a European focus, where appropriate, an international perspective will be included to enhance a more global understanding of the crime.
The course will take place at the Interuniversity Center of Dubrovnik, Croatia, from October 21st to 25th 2019.
