“Framing for Fighting: A Migrant Justice Frame for Building Broad Consensus and Action Against Human Trafficking"
This panel will examine the definitions of human trafficking that have been proposed by government agencies, various documentaries and news specials, critically engaging discourses of human trafficking and calling attention to the different stakeholders. At the same time it will ask what laws offer the best hope for success. How can reframing the problem as one of labor and migration offer more productive solutions that could empower workers?
