Webinar: The Role of Technology in Human Trafficking and Anti-Trafficking

Over the past ten years, academics, policy makers and civil society have increasingly called for a better understanding of the role of technology in preventing or facilitating human trafficking. Attention has focused on a range of issues from adult services websites and the use of social media to recruit victims and facilitate trafficking to the utilisation of data analytics software to understand trafficking and identify ‘hotspots of risk’. Despite this attention, the distinct ways in which technology shapes trafficking and anti-trafficking efforts has remained understudied.

This webinar will present the new issue of the journal Anti-Trafficking Review, which critically examines the role of technology in human trafficking and anti-trafficking efforts. Speakers will reflect on various tech-based anti-trafficking initiatives, such as apps, websites, and border and other security technologies. They will discuss whether and how these can help trafficked persons and vulnerable migrant workers and what potential harms they can cause.
