Lecture: Reframing Human Trafficking - a Human Rights, Life Course Approach

-

Location: 1130 Eck Hall of Law

Young women who have been trafficked for sexual exploitation have unique perceptions about their lives and the significance of having been trafficked. Angela Reed, RSM, is a Sister of Mercy and a graduate of RMIT University’s School of Global, Urban and Social Studies, Melbourne, Australia, will share aspects of her research with formerly trafficked Filipino women. Grounded in an ethical, transformative and critical feminist methodology she will highlight the importance of gaining knowledge about human trafficking from those who have experienced it firsthand. Dr. Reed will illustrate how her findings from the research subvert stereotypes of a homogenous sex trafficking experience and point to the need for a life course, rights-based approach to anti-trafficking policy and prevention.
