The State of Labor Trafficking Domestically and Abroad: A Critical Assessment on the 20th Anniversary of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act
Interactive Online Format
On the 20th Anniversary of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act, this summer’s Academy offers a critical assessment of the state of labor trafficking domestically and abroad. Despite tremendous progress against human trafficking, there is presently an estimated 24.9 million people trapped in forced labor in industries including agriculture, construction, domestic work, and manufacturing around the world. Whether proliferated by disreputable supply chains, propelled by vulnerability in migrations, condoned by culture, emboldened by unenforced laws or even in some cases sanctioned by governments, this modern slavery of epic proportions must be eradicated through a victim-centered approach.
The John J. Brunetti Human Trafficking Academy of St. Thomas University School of Law is renowned for its solid track record of effective training on human trafficking matters. To date, the Academy has provided specialized training and technical assistance to over 10,000 leaders and community members domestically and abroad. This Academy’s online format will continue to offer its exceptional curriculum and intensive certification with 15 advanced courses taught by leading experts in the field. We look forward to providing you with cutting-edge perspectives, insight, and knowledge on the state of labor trafficking as we combat this scourge together in the years to come!
