The Sovereign Order of Malta, in collaboration with the Ad Laudato Si' Integral Human Ecology Forum, is organizing a webinar on October 12 (6 pm CET) dedicated to legal approaches to reduce the demand behind human trafficking:

While law enforcement responses to human trafficking are the clear focus globally, they are entirely supply side. Supply-side measures can deter, displace, and disrupt specific operations, but does not impact either the size of the nature of the illicit markets for labor. They also fail to counter the perpetual upward spiral of demand that drives the trafficking of people. This overwhelming supply-side focus has meant legal responses on the demand side of the equation are seriously lacking. This webinar is designed to provoke ideas about how the law is used to drive demand-side responses, reducing the driving force for all forms of human trafficking.
