St. Thomas Law Hosts Winter Human Trafficking Academy
St. Thomas Law’s 2015 Winter Human Trafficking Academy, a project originally funded by the Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance, is designed to conduct research, outreach and education in the field of human trafficking. Starting Dec. 7 - 11, through a multidisciplinary approach, the Academy will provide effective tools to increase the awareness about human trafficking, identify and protect human trafficking victims and develop strategies to prevent and effectively combat this crime.
Participants will gain insight into various forms of human trafficking, best practices in addressing this crime, modalities of working with survivors, and ways of partnering with the community to develop a cohesive anti-trafficking strategy. Upon completion of the training, participants will be able to recognize not only the importance of prevention, protection, prosecution, and partnership in facing trafficking crimes, but also the importance of rescue, recovery and reintegration of human trafficking survivors.
The 2015 Academy, directed by Dr. Roza Pati, consists of 22 interactive courses, available on campus and online, taught by top-level experts, academics and practitioners.
