 July 17th – 21st  CCARHT Symposium  2017

@ St Catharine’s College, University of Cambridge

Children in Forced Migration and Human Trafficking Risk

 Following on the significant gains of the inaugural Symposium last year, this year the CCARHT Symposium focussed on the divided forces and political mandates informing the actions of Nation States, Children’s Rights advocates and those who seek to exploit the ‘benefits of risky journeys’.  We took out from the Pandora’s Box which we had laid out for us, and was unpacked by world class lecturers, and some heroic champions of Human Rights working in challenging locations in international ‘hubs’ of trafficking risk,   the treatment of Children in forced migration, Children unaccompanied and separated from their families,  Child Sexual Exploitation, Children caught in Criminality and recruited into criminal gangs and drug production,  Children deliberately maimed and disabled for begging,  the growing trade in Organs particularly in the Southern Hemisphere, Children caught in armed conflict as soldiers, domestic slaves and ‘comfort children’.

The multiple vulnerabilities of Human Trafficking  was laid bare before the delegates, and together the symposium responded to the challenge to innovate, to think large, to elaborate their networks and their power to influence and change, and what working towards some sustainable mitigation and increased social protection would look like in their workplace, discipline, and neighborhoods.  Thinking Global and acting locally was something of a theme of the week – with the internet enabling us to also consider the power of networks and supporting the work of others engaged in the challenge of addressing Trafficking of Children in their contexts internationally.

The annual CCARHT Summer School offers  a unique opportunity to gain a detailed overview of the major issues which arise in the year’s chosen thematic.  This year delegates and lecturers were able to work in a sustained manner to generate some deep systems understanding  around what was politically, economically, culturally and socially impeding the provision of impactful social protection for children caught in the flows of populations at high risk of being trafficked whilst searching for opportunity, escaping from slaughter and civil wars, insurrections and conscription, cultural exclusion and poverty, or simply responding to the desires of their elders and suffering from the tyranny of age assymetry.

The exceptional environment of St Catharine’s College, in the heart of the City, provided an opportunity to relax and refresh thinking and empathy after a day of rigorous debate and presentations.  White papers and some film excerpts of the days’ presentations will be being made available soon.

If you are interested in attending next year’s symposium be in touch with summerschool@ccarht.org  for your name and organisation to be added to our mailing list.  We look forward to seeing you next year.

Film

Over the week we shall be watching a range of  films and shorts, from production houses in Europe, India, the U.S and the Middle East, addressing issues of contemporary concern around Human Trafficking.  This is a wonderful opportunity to engage with the material at multiple levels,  to consider with yur peers the impact and potential of film to engage  public imagination, impact public policy, and transform the wider context in which Human Trafficking is set.
For more information – and to grab a seat at one of the film events, Tuesday 2nd, Wednesday 3rd and Saturday 6th August)  contact Pankhuri@ccarht.org

 

TRUST FUNDS and CSR Business Foundations – If you would like to sponsor some of those currently applying to be a part of this special week from NGOs and Universities in the less economically vibrant southern hemisphere, then please be in touch with carrie@ccarht.org – as we have delegates anxious to attend, without the funds available.  Thank you – this would be a great way to facilitate the important questions getting asked and some of the working answers getting trialled where it matters most.  Director@ccarht.org

—————————————————————————————————————

Human Trafficking undermines the stability of states, obliterates the autonomy, dignity and safety of those trafficked,  and is a violation of our common humanity.
It is a trauma on the quest for an evolved humanity, with economic, humanitarian, geo-political, relational and social impacts at every point of its trajectory.  To start to understand it and to respond to it with intelligence, rigour and human empathy is the beginning of late modern wisdom.
