Exploitation 2021: Tackling the culture and challenges of trafficking, slavery and county lines
This major two-day online conference brings together key academics, leading practitioners and victim perspectives to listen to the voices of exploitation; the victims, their families, the professionals, the researchers and the policy makers.
With in-depth Keynote speeches, Q & A sessions, 21 accompanying workshops and presentations with numerous “hubs” to meet our speakers and organisations, join to learn, network and reflect at this practice-informed conference with AoCPP in partnership with the University of Kent International Centre for Child Protection.
All speakers will reflect on the changing situation under Covid-19 within their presentations and bring the very latest research facing all Child Protection staff today – from any background and vocation.
