Human Trafficking – The Nexus between Research and Operative Work
Time: Thursday, November 25, 2010, 09:00-17:00
Venue: Uppsala University, Main University Building, Hall 10
On November 25, 2010, Uppsala Centre for Russian and Eurasian Studies (UCRS), Centre for Police Research and The Council of the Baltic Sea States (CBSS), arranged a conference titled "Human Trafficking - The Nexus Between Research and Operative Work".
Human trafficking is a global social problem that requires a common and comprehensive solution. In recent years, continuous progress has been made in developing a common vision of trafficking in human beings and there has been an increasing number of studies on this topic. However, there are still gaps in the ongoing investigations and information gathering and the need for a greater exchange of knowledge between relevant actors. A lack of dialogue between academics and practitioners is also an obstacle to research.
The aim of the workshop was to bring together leading researches from different disciplines and stakeholders at the operational level in order to exchange information on trafficking and facilitate the networking between these key actors.
