Peace, Conflict and Justice Conference 2017 - Behind Closed Doors: Trafficking Labour, Sex and Art


Behind Closed Doors will shed light on modern day slavery and the trafficking of cultural legacies — two issues whose human and economic impact cannot fully be quantified due to its clandestine nature. The conference will begin on Friday, February 3rd with a keynote address and networking reception. On Saturday, February 4th, the forum will set the tone for the day through an overview of the current actions undertaken by national and international actors to deal with sex and labour trafficking. The workshop will provide the audience with the opportunity to engage in informal activities through the guidance of local experts, practitioners, and scholars. Lastly, the debate will ask both participants and audience members alike to confront the ethical dilemma that surrounds trafficked art.
