Dialogue Forum – Panel Discussion: Stop Human Trafficking – Mission Impossible?

Recorded on: 21 November 2014

Moderation: Helga Konrad, Coordinator of the ‘Regional Implementation Initiative on Preventing & Combating Human Trafficking ‘

Panelists:

Anneliese Rohrer, Journalist and Filmmaker, Austria/USA
‘The victims of human trafficking are abused twice: Once by their tormentors and then by our indifference.’

Mike Dottridge, Expert and Consultant, Global Alliance against Traffic in Women
‘When I was director of Anti-Slavery International in the 1990s, I was convinced that criminal justice responses (prosecuting criminals) were going to play a relatively minor role in stopping human trafficking, forced labour, the exploitation of prostitution or
begging and other unacceptable forms of exploitation. Nothing has happened to change my opinion’.

Roger Plant, Chair, FLEX – Focus on Labour Exploitation
‘The Mission is possible, if we fully understand it. It is not only to protect victims and put offenders behind bars, but to implement the
laws and policies that address the real roots of trafficking for both labour and sexual exploitation’.

Kiril Sharapov, Marie Curie Research Fellow, Central European University/Lecturer, Glasgow Caledonian University
‘The eradication of trafficking is likely to remain ‘mission impossible’ unless we acknowledge the relationship between consumers, ‘ordinary’ citizens, business and corporations on the one hand, and exploitative labour – trafficked, off-shored, subcontracted and hidden behind the façade of anti-trafficking initiatives and ‘modern slavery’ battles, on the other hand.’

Kristiina Kangaspunta, Head of the UNODC Global Report on Trafficking in Persons
‘We need to understand the economic realities of trafficking in persons: the main reason for human trafficking is the fact that traffickers are trying to maximize their profits by exploiting those who are in a vulnerable situation.’

Austin Choi-Fitzpatrick, Ass. Prof. of Political Sociology, Central European University, Hungary/USA
