Trafficking in persons continues as a severe violation of human rights around the world. Women and girls, in particular, are vulnerable to human trafficking in a variety of sectors, and they experience coercion, abuse, and a climate of fear in their work. This panel will feature discussion by program and policy experts as they examine the dynamics of vulnerabilities, and the promotion of human rights-based and long-term solutions to trafficking in persons.
