Human Trafficking Conference at Northwestern

THE CHAINS THAT REMAIN: HUMAN TRAFFICKING IN A GLOBAL CONTEXT

The 2006 Northwestern University Conference on Human Rights will investigate human trafficking in the international community. This conference will bring students from across North America, free of charge, to Chicago to meet with distinguished academics, activists and policy makers from around the globe. The educational emphasis of the conference presents a unique forum for university students, as well as the general public, to discuss the future of this crucial issue in the growing field of human rights.

This year’s conference, in collaboration with the Campus Coalition Against Trafficking, is the national undergraduate forum for the discussion of anti-trafficking, seeking to train emerging leaders, foster youth empowerment, raise awareness about human trafficking, and encourage cross-disciplinary linkages among social justice issues.

In past years, the Northwestern University Conference on Human Rights has featured addresses by Ambassador Richard Holbrooke, former US Ambassador to the UN; Dr. Bernard Kouchner, co-founder of the Nobel Prize-winning organization Doctors Without Borders; Ambassador Stephen Lewis—UN Special Envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa and one of TIME Magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world; and many, many more!
