Anti-trafficking & Brexit:  Future-Proofing Strategies

Date: Tuesday 06 June 2017

Time: 18:00 - 21.00

Location: Central London

Speakers: Catherine Meredith, Keina Yoshida, Simon Cox, Dr Anne Gallagher & Professor Siobhan Mullally

We would like to invite you to a high level expert symposium, looking at strategies to future-proof anti-trafficking law and policy; and the range of means by which we can hold the UK Government to account at domestic, European and international level.

 

We will discuss the following:

 

  •      Health check & follow up: the recent evaluation of UK law and policy by the Group of Experts on Action Against Trafficking in Human Beings (GRETA) and its recommendations.
  •      Lessons from around the globe:  effective methods & strategies in countries without access to regional courts; and how we can learn from them;
  •      Litigating at European level: the broad scope of Article 4 ECHR and the road to Strasbourg;
  •      Petitioning international bodies: focus on and using CEDAW;
  •      Domestic challenges: the Modern Slavery Act and the transposition of applicable secondary EU legislation in domestic law – what is working, what is not, identifying gaps and challenges.

 

The talks will be followed by drinks and networking.
