Event details of Conference on Trafficking in Human Beings
Date 13 December 2018
Time 13:00 -16:00

Approximately 150 Public Law Master’s students have spent the past several months tackling the course “Principles of democratic states under the rule of law” (Beginselen van een Democratische Rechtsstaat), one of the first to be given within the framework of the Amsterdam Law Practice. While engaged in experiential learning, students performed research into trafficking in human beings. That theme was introduced earlier this year by the exhibition Open Your Eyes.

Legal recommendations

The expression “human trafficking” generally evokes images of women being forced into prostitution, yet it can also include labour exploitation, criminal exploitation, and forced organ removal.

Based on legal dossiers, the Master’s students embarked on an in-depth exploration of various (cross-disciplinary) legal aspects, formulating legal recommendations for clients or fictitious target groups with the aim of dealing with or preventing trafficking in human beings.

Herman Bolhaar

On 13 December 2018, the students will present their findings to National Rapporteur on Trafficking in Human Beings Herman Bolhaar. Earlier, he had this to say: “The Public Law Master’s students at the UvA are contributing ideas on how to tackle trafficking in human beings. It is important that social issues such as human trafficking are part of the curriculum.”

Other colleagues from the human-trafficking field – e.g. the Public Prosecution Service (OM), the Inspectorate SZW (Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment) and CoMensha – will also be represented at the conference, and various invited speakers will illustrate trafficking in human beings from the viewpoint of professionals in the field.
