BWJP HOME CONFERENCE HOME
From Barriers to Solutions: Investigating and Prosecuting Human Trafficking / 15 May 2013

Presented By: BWJP

Date: Wednesday, May 15, 2013
Time: 2:00pm - 3:30pm Central Time
Location: Your Desk

Presenter: Viktoria Kristiansson, Attorney Advisor, AEquitas: A Prosecutors’ Resource on Violence Against Women.

Content: Human trafficking thrives in rural, suburban, and urban jurisdictions across the country because it is routinely undetected, overlooked, or misidentified. The common misconception that “we don’t have human trafficking in our jurisdiction” leads many criminal justice system professionals to fail to recognize common indicators of human trafficking. Further, a lack of coordination between the criminal justice system and community-based programs results in a lack of victim identification and offender accountability.  While our ability to identify offenders and victims has improved, there are still significant gaps in the justice system’s response to human trafficking.

This webinar is designed to raise prosecutors’ awareness about the dynamics and indicators of human trafficking and challenge participants to reevaluate their approach to detecting and prosecuting human trafficking crimes. The webinar will explore the complex issues faced by prosecutors in identifying, investigating, and prosecuting human trafficking while balancing offender accountability with the impact of criminal prosecution on victims.
