The Robert Presley Center of Crime & Justice Studies, in collaboration with the Blum Initiative on Global and Regional Poverty, is pleased to announce its 2018 symposium, A Closer Look at Sex Trafficking: A Discussion by Researchers and Practitioners. Thisevent brings together scholars, advocates, service providers, and law enforcement to bridge academic and applied perspectives on sex trafficking. By connecting empirics with practice, we anticipate a robust conversation surrounding "best practices" for the eradication of sex trafficking. Topics include global as well as local foci, associated risk factors, limitations and challenges in researching and policing trafficking, and suggestions for victim support. Community leaders, law enforcement, faculty, students, and the public are encouraged to attend the symposium and participate in the greater, on-going dialogue surrounding this issue.
