Dr. Nicola Rooney has been employed by the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference as Research Coordinator for the Council for Justice and Peace and the Northern Ireland Catholic Council on Social Affairs since 2008. During this time, both Councils have been actively involved in advocacy initiatives relating to human trafficking, including the publication of a statement in November 2009 .
In addition, both Councils advise the Bishops’ Conference on this issue, leading to a joint statement by all the bishops in September 2012 calling for the criminalisation of the purchase of “sexual services” in both jurisdictions in Ireland. As a member of the Executive Committee of the Conference of European Justice and Peace Commissions, Dr. Rooney participated in an Exposure Dialogue programme in Ukraine in May 2009. Participants spent three days researching the problem of human trafficking while living with families who had been affected, before presenting their findings to a meeting of key stakeholders, including Church leaders, CEOs of relevant NGOs and the Minister for Social and Family Affairs.
