Combatting Trafficking in Human Beings: Prevention, Prevention, and Prevention

The Dutch Rapporteur on Trafficking in Human Beings and Sexual Violence against Children, Corinne Dettmeijer-Vermeulen, will present her view on what the key elements are in combatting human trafficking; key elements of a holistic approach based on primary prevention, secondary prevention and tertiary prevention.

Corinne Dettmeijer-Vermeulen has been the National Rapporteur in the Netherlands since 2006. Her main task is to report on the nature and extent of human trafficking and sexual violence against children in the Netherlands, and on the effects of the government policies pursued. Prior to this engagement, for many years, she has been a judge at the district court of The Hague, and from 1995 until 2014 she served as vice president of the court. As a judge, she handled cases in juvenile, criminal, family and migration law. She has been a member of several (international) professional bodies and advisory committees in the field of juvenile law. After completing her law degree at Leiden University, she started her career as a public prosecutor in Rotterdam.

THIS EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO ALL BUT REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED FOR ADMISSION. Please email Antonela Arhin at cdts@utoronto.ca by May 27 to RSVP.
