NEXUS at INTERPOL Global Conference on Trafficking in Human Beings and Smuggling of Migrants (December 2017)

DOHA, QATAR, 6-7 December 2017 – The NEXUS Institute joined more than 300 experts from law enforcement, the public and private sectors, non-governmental and international organizations from 90 countries at the 5th INTERPOL Global Conference on Trafficking in Human Beings and Smuggling of Migrants. The conference focused on the essential roles that the public and private sectors play in preventing, detecting, reporting, disrupting and ultimately prosecuting those responsible for crimes which have no borders, and no limits.

International experts in human trafficking and migrant smuggling called for expanded cross-sector involvement in order to protect the world’s most vulnerable from the exploitation of organized crime groups.

NEXUS Senior Researcher Rebecca Surtees spoke on a panel about how law enforcement agencies can work with NGOs, IOs and academia to fight human trafficking, sharing findings and lessons learned from the NEXUS Institute’s work in Indonesia that can be applied in many other countries.
