Professional Certificate in Tackling Human Trafficking

  • 14th - 16th May 2024
  • Virtual Learning

Course Overview

Human trafficking is a $150-billion-a-year industry and is the world's fastest growing criminal enterprise, with an estimated 27 million victims. Tackling human trafficking has become a critical focus of the international community, as the UN Post-2015 Development Agenda has called for action to be taken urgently to "end modern slavery and human trafficking".

This course will provide those involved in investigating, preventing and mitigating the effects of human trafficking with a clear understanding of its nature, evolution and drivers, as well as the tools to tackle the crisis.

Interactive learning will support participants’ understanding of the key issues surrounding human trafficking, such as the relationship with other criminal activity, the treatment of survivors and international agreements. By examining best practice case studies and anti-trafficking policy, participants will leave equipped to assess anti-trafficking strategies and investigations, and implement action plans to tackle the crime, whilst engaging a broad range of stakeholders.

A comprehensive analysis of the tools to counter human trafficking will be provided, with subjects to be discussed including:

  • The economics of human trafficking
  • The crux of the trafficking issue and policy impacts
  • The immigration/asylum debate and impact on policy
  • Gender and human trafficking
  • Public awareness campaigns
  • Supporting victims of human trafficking

Experts in the field will lead this training through interactive workshops, lectures and best practice case studies, fostering innovation, creative learning and networking amongst peers.

What Learners Say


“ Very useful materials and practical case studies to test knowledge and understanding. The virtual training is easy to access each day. Good amount of interactive studies and comfort breaks. I have never attended an internally run course before and I have found it extremely beneficial to be learning alongside delegates from other countries also working in the realm of Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery. “
