NUS Human Trafficking Conference: Friday, 10 January, NUS UTown


While sex trafficking has garnered much of the public’s attention, labor trafficking is arguably increasing in both volume and scope, especially in the fishing and construction industries, as well as domestic services in Southeast Asia.

This interactive conference is a rare opportunity where a diverse array of both international and local academics, activists, practitioners and policymakers will come together to have a fruitful exchange of ideas and perspectives.

Please join in the discussion with our speakers, as they debunk commonly-held beliefs about labor trafficking in the various sectors, and challenge conventional wisdom and traditional policy responses in mitigating this growing problem.
