A half-day conference on human trafficking.
The trafficking of persons for the sex trade is an expanding feature of the global service economy, as is the illicit trade in human body parts for transplants. Since the collapse of Communism in 1989, people and their parts are trafficked to, through, and from the former Soviet sphere. Porous borders, more flexible labor, and economic difficulties combined with diversified international crime organizations contribute to the increase in trafficking. This workshop explores the recent integration of Eastern Europe into global trafficking networks.
