Combatting Trafficking in Persons
March 13, 2018 - March 16, 2018
20 visitors from multiple countries across the globe will be joining the San Diego Diplomacy Council to discuss Combatting Trafficking in Persons.
This project supports a major tenet of U.S. foreign policy: the human rights imperative to combat trafficking of persons for the sex trade and slave labor. Discussions will focus on best practices to disrupt the supply and demand chains. Participants will examine U.S. legislation; visa regulations; enforcement against and prosecution of traffickers; initiatives to identify, protect, assist, and provide services for trafficking victims; efforts to raise awareness through the media; and local, national, and international cooperative efforts to combat trafficking in persons. Participants will meet with local, state, and federal government agencies, law enforcement, educators, NGOs, faith-based organizations, and advocacy groups to examine how the U.S. public and private sectors collaborate to end trafficking, both domestically and internationally.
