Domestication of Human Trafficking in Canada: Examining the Evidence
Human trafficking is an issue that has garnered significant attention in Canada and globally, following the enactment of the United Nations’ Trafficking Protocol in 2002. Expansive laws, policies and mandates against trafficking were put into place following Canada’s ratification of the Protocol. In this talk, Katrin Roots will examine some of the impacts of these efforts over the past twenty years, including how trafficking has come to be defined, and its impacts on sex working, migrant and racialized communities.
