verbindt in de strijd tegen mensenhandel
Human Trafficking.Info aims to provide a resource for legal and related information, opinion and advice on trafficking in human beings.
Human trafficking is our modern slavery. People, especially women, are traded, threatened and abused for commercial gain. Trafficked persons are exploited in the sex and other industry.
Trafficking in Human Beings not just raises humanitarian and legal issues. Human trafficking, specifically in the sex industry, is also a health problem: victims are physically and psychologically abused and scarred for life. The consequences are far-reaching.
Human Trafficking.Info and the accompanying website is an initiative of and edited by Chris Sent LLM. She has worked for several years in the fashion industry, before becoming a lawyer. She finished her studies at the university of Amsterdam (UvA) . She worked as a legal researcher in the field of Commercial Communication Law before she followed her interest in human rights. Working at the Refugee department of Amnesty International she was confronted with the phenomenon of Human Trafficking. In recent years she has specialized in legal issues surrounding human trafficking.
