Join JVI for Our Upcoming Webinar: Strategies to Fight Human Trafficking in China

Register for the Webinar

Human trafficking in China has entered the spotlight as an increasingly urgent international concern, as widespread forced labour, cross-border forced marriages and attempted political reforms reveal the variety of trafficking issues facing the country. This month, Freedom Collaborative and Justice Ventures International will join forces to start a conversation that we hope will bring stakeholders together and spark fruitful future partnerships.

Justice Ventures International (JVI) is driven by a desire to combat human trafficking through a partnership approach. Last year, it completed a project as a part of a research partnership with China University of Political Science and Law, which sought to learn more about human trafficking in China, focusing on its legal framework for dealing with trafficking as well as assessing the knowledge, attitudes and practices of Chinese citizens. The resulting publication is the Citizens’ Guide to Fighting Human Trafficking for China (available in both English and Mandarin).

Our webinar takes place on Tuesday, December 13th at 9am EST / 3pm CET / 9pm ICT, and our panel of experts will include Melvin Huang, who will discuss the current legal framework for fighting human trafficking in China and recent developments in the wake of the “Little Plum Flower” scandal; Ann-Elise Quinn, who will present research findings on forced labour in China and the identification of its presence in supply chains; and Jeffrey Pankratz and Jeanny Lee, who will present JVI’s model Standard Operating Procedures, which have been successfully used to fight trafficking in Asia.

During this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • What businesses, NGOs and private citizens can do to fight human trafficking in China today;
  • How technology is being used to detect forced labour in supply chains;
  • What measures the Government of China is taking to fight trafficking and how laws enacted in China could potentially be used to prosecute perpetrators; and
  • How Standard Operating Procedures can be used to improve outcomes in the rescue, prosecution and rehabilitation phases of a human trafficking operation.
