Human Trafficking in the Commonwealth Caribbean: A Socio-Legal Critique

September 23 | 9:00 - 10:00 AM | Room 2582

This paper provides a critical analysis of the law and practice on human trafficking in the Commonwealth Caribbean. More specifically, it provides a socio-legal critique of the gaps in implementation of anti-trafficking law, drawing on empirical research conducted in four Commonwealth Caribbean countries. It identifies, in particular, the shortfalls currently being experienced between law and practice from a normative, institutional and rights-based perspective. It also considers nuanced approaches in other jurisdictions, and argues for a more synergistic response to human trafficking in the region, in the interest of protecting victims, preventing the rapid growth of the phenomenon, and prosecuting perpetrators.
