With a decade remaining before the initial deadline of the SDG’s, we shall be exploring various aspects of the SDG’s and their implication in building resilience against Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery, and unpacking the ‘arbitraging’ of advantage that is currently taking place globally, as traffickers undermine efforts towards economic stabilization, geo-political transparency, and social equality.

If you have a paper you would like to develop for the symposium – please be in touch with symposium@ccarht.org so that you can be considered for inclusion in what is fast emerging as the ‘go-to’ symposium for tackling the multi-headed hydra of Human Trafficking processes, and the human rights devastation of Modern Slavery.

Day five: Goal 17 in focus with previous days’ attention reprised – Building partnerships going forward. A day for building forward the eco-system that is the CCARHT counter-trafficking network. OUr first session brings businesses and researchers together to explore Tech and Trafficking, some of the solutions required, and some of the emerging technology coming available which can be repurposed. Attendees of this session will be awarded a University of Nicosia certificate of attendance, along with their certificate of session attendance from CCARHT.

In the next session we shall be exploring how to build and develop a purposeful and sustainable network of partnerships to power change. In the afternoon the CCARHT directors invite funders, philanthropists and ethical investors to engage with us in camera, to explore how CCARHT and our exceptional network of talented researchers and committed and expertly informed advocates for change might find a way to source sustained funding to exercise the innovative work which we undertake here from the Centre. To be a part of this closed event please drop a note to Grahame@ccarht.org, he will be delighted to be in conversation with you to take this element of our post symposium process forward.

Each evening we shall be recommending a set of films for our delegates to watch in preparation, or further consideration of the day passed, or next day’s symposium panels. Twitter threads will be available for the comments and thoughts arising from this joint watching in our homes of these resources, some brought exclusively for the consideration of symposium delegates.
