Asylum Access to Host Trafficking Symposium at Georgetown Law Center

On Thursday, November 18, 2010 Asylum Access and the Georgetown Law Human Rights Institute will present “Spiraling into Desperation: The Connection Between Refugee Rights and Human Trafficking.” The event will take place from 12 to 5pm at the Georgetown Law Center, 600 New Jersey Ave. NW, Washington, DC.

This groundbreaking symposium will bring together scholars, NGOs leaders, and legislators from the refugee rights and anti-trafficking communities to discuss the urgent need to incorporate refugee rights enforcement into global anti-trafficking efforts. Panelists will highlight growing evidence illustrating the direct connection between violation of refugee rights and increased vulnerability to human trafficking. Distingushed panelists include our own Emily Arnold-Fernandez, Laura Lederer, President of Global Centurion and Adjunct Professor at Georgetown Law Center, and Mary Ellison, Director of Policy at Polaris Project.
