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.

Humanities Series: Safety, Security and Human Rights of Migrants

Tainted clothes: Human rights in the garment sector? (Day 1)

Which human rights are at stake in the garment sector?
