Description

Ending the Cycle: Leveraging Tech, Data and Governance to Combat Human Trafficking

Human trafficking is a significant global issue that affects nearly 25 million people. However, tackling this issue requires coordinated efforts between multiple groups at a local level. Law enforcement, social organizations, and governments all play a significant role in identifying and combating this activity. There are also unwilling participants, such as hotels and banks, that play a role in facilitating this activity. Each of these stakeholders collects volumes of data that, collectively, could be utilized in a way to paint a much richer picture of where human trafficking activity is happening. Connecting these disparate data sources, identifying technological solutions to leverage these assets, and implementing effective governance structures will play a significant role in reducing the impact of human trafficking.

Join us at this special Communitech Data Hub Session, in partnership with the Centre for International Governance Innovation, as a panel of experts explore the diverse challenges of tackling human trafficking. We will uncover the problems stakeholders face in getting to the root cause and explore potential solutions that can contribute to helping those on the front lines tackle this issue.
