Reintegration and post-reintegration services to trafficking survivors

There has been a lot of emphasis on the three Ps (prevention, protection, and prosecution) in efforts to confront the injustice of human trafficking. However, one additional P, programming, has received less attention even though it is just as important as the original Ps.

This lecture looks at mechanisms of ensuring that programmes that serve survivors and victims of human trafficking are evidence-based. The lecture will talk about the initiatives by the African Programming and Research Initiative to End Slavery (APRIES) to support local programmes’ capacities to serve women, children, and men who have experienced exploitation through trafficking. Challenges in establishing baseline data and service gaps will also be discussed.

Speaker: Dr David Okech, University of Georgia

The Centre for the Study of International Slavery (CSIS) is a collaboration between the International Slavery Museum and the University of Liverpool to foster understanding and share research on human enslavement and its legacies.
