2022 Assembly


Displacement of Persons and Human Trafficking are centre-stage at the TRUST Conference: America Forum: Putting the Rule of Law behind Human Rights, 25 April 2017.


To hear more about the factors in the western hemisphere which facilitate the exploitation of people through labour-trafficking, tune in to hear the keynote address of Ms. Denise Brennan, Professor and Chair of the Department of Anthropology, Georgetown University, Washington D.C. 
In speaking about the relationship between trafficking and the criminalisation of immigration, Professor Brennan refers to the potential impact of the alarming increase in anti-immigrant rhetoric emerging across Europe and the United States.  Her concern is that anti-immigrant policies make trafficking possible, stating ‘’Policies that push immigrants to live and work in the shadows, make them perfect prey as they fear reporting exploitation and abuse.’’
