The Pardee School Initiative on Forced Migration and Human Trafficking (FMHT) at Boston University is pleased to invite paper and presentation proposals for a EU Jean Monnet Erasmus+ sponsored international workshop October 27-28th.

The way we think about human trafficking and migration is changing. Migration can be voluntary or forced, but global environmental, security, and economic crises have dramatically increased refugee flows. At the global, regional, and national levels of policy-making, practice, and advocacy, trafficking has broad geopolitical and humanitarian implications. Understanding trafficking, undocumented movement, and smuggling - within the broader context of migration - requires evaluating the intersectionality of these separate but related issues. It is no coincidence that a surge in trafficking has occurred during a period of growing displaced populations and international demand for migrant workers. Some governments have adapted better than others to these developments, with policy outcomes ranging from harnessing innovation and legal frameworks for protecting migrants, while other solutions have involved tighter immigration and border controls, with unintended humanitarian consequences. The market of exploitation is becoming increasingly profitable for smugglers and traffickers, contributing to the challenges facing both states and displaced persons. 

By bringing together academics, practitioners, local, national, and regional policymakers, NGOs, advocates, students, first person observers, and survivors, we are interested in convening to discuss the convergence of trafficking and migration, with a particular focus on innovation that disrupts exploitation markets of vulnerable and displaced refugees.

This workshop seeks to investigate human trafficking within a broader migration framework and propose innovative solutions to disrupt trafficking and prevent humanitarian and labour right violations.  We will address this from multiple perspectives, including policy, activism, and research. Other trafficking markets offer lessons we can harness, such as policy innovations to decrease profitability or increase costs and inefficiencies to the profit seekers, thereby making it a less attractive market to exploit. Focusing on the dismantlement of illicit exploitation markets through the education of migrants and the coordination of international relief efforts, we also seek technology solutions which assist victims and disrupt the growing global human trafficking market of displaced persons. The nexus of migration and trafficking is academically understudied, with key data and analytical gaps.

Broadly, the structure of the conference will be centered upon three themes: 
	Legal Challenges  Prevention, Prosecution, and Protection  
	Private Sector Solutions  Combatting Human Trafficking with Data Analytics and Disruptive Technologies 
	Exploring the Intersectionality of Human Trafficking and Migration  Recommendations for Future Policy & Research 

In addition to the core roundtable discussions, the FMHT Initiative invites paper and/or policy proposals that relate to the challenges associated with the trafficking-migration nexus. Breakout panels will be organized to feature a variety of papers, presentations, technological solutions, and innovative approaches. We will publish the contributions in two formats: a conference policy report and an academic symposium publication.
If you are interested in submitting an academic paper, preparing a presentation, or acting as an expert discussant, please send proposals of less than 300 words to Claire Coffey at [log in to unmask] by August 1. Proposers will be notified of the acceptance or decline by August 15.
