Reframing Human Trafficking: A Human Rights, Life Course Approach- Dr. Angela Reed, RSM.



Acting co-ordinator of Mercy Global Action at the United Nations, Dr. Angela Reed RSM, shares her knowledge and experience of working in the field of human trafficking and human rights, as she addresses The Centre for Civil and Human Rights at the University of Notre Dame, Indiana.

Dr. Angela has managed a Safe House for women and children, sponsored by her congregation in Melbourne, Australia. An activist, committed to advancing human rights for all and particularly focused on elimination of violence against women, Angela illustrates how her research findings subvert stereotypes of a homogenous sex trafficking experience and points to the need for a life course, rights-based approach to anti-trafficking policy and prevention.
