Every year, thousands of men, women, and children are trafficked into the United States according to the U.S. government. Victims are trafficked for the purpose of commercial sexual exploitation, labor, and debt bondage. U.S. citizen victims are also trafficked within and outside the country. According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, approximately 100,000 U.S. children each year are victims of commercial sexual exploitation.

The United States uses a four paradigm approach in combating human trafficking: prevention, protection, prosecution, and partnerships. In addition to the U.S. federal law, the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA), states have also passed their own individual state laws to address human trafficking.

What is currently being done to respond to and combat trafficking in the United States? What is succeeding? What isn't? The panel will tackle challenges and lessons learned in combating human trafficking from a victim-centered, enforcement, and prevention perspective.

Co-sponsonsored with:
the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation, Harvard Kennedy School
