Anti-Trafficking Education from Workers and Movements for Rights and Justice
The past decade has seen a dramatic increase in the sites for anti-trafficking education and the range of educators who shape how the public and institutions understand and respond to human trafficking. Thus, there is a need to analyse the formalised and informalised practices that facilitate teaching and learning about trafficking. At its worst, anti-trafficking education steeped in misinformation and myths fails to contextualise and complicate trafficking, which can lead to dehumanisation and violence. At its best, anti-trafficking education can encourage and inform efforts to create structural change, social justice, and individual empowerment.
At this event, educators from universities, non-government organisations, and worker associations will discuss one central question: What would it take for anti-trafficking education to be in the service of human rights, economic justice, labour rights, and public health?
